It really does beggar belief that if the “number of incidents as very significant” it is only now that the leading safety adviser in global aviation is just getting involved.
On the other hand … “John Leahy, the chief operating officer of Airbus, said that the number of incidents was small and the company had no plans at the present time to review the engine latches. “You just have to follow appropriate maintenance. People have to be careful.”
…”Passengers on flight BA762, who feared for their lives as the plane returned to Heathrow on one, exposed engine, are consulting a specialist aviation lawyer with a view to legal action.”
Currently it appears CYA is more paramount than understanding and preventing.
