    I assume the glowing circle is a bearing on its last legs.

    That’s the part where I start quietly (and not so quietly) relive the last 20 episodes of Air Crash Investigations / Mayday

    Never understand why us frequent travelers watch ACI. A bit like self flagellation I suppose!!

    I’ve been in at least 4 aircraft where the engine has gone kaput.
    DC 8 PAR-JNB in 1969
    BA BAC 1-11 MAN – somewhere??
    DC10 (Nigerian Airways) over the Sahara. All the lights (even the emergency ones) went out as well, it was quite nice to be in total darkness with the aircraft lit solely by the full moon.
    Swiss Avro Jet Jumbolino (on takeoff from LCY)

    And several times in the 747 between JFK and LHR/LGW. Didn’t really notice anything but was told about it each time by the crew on landing!

    And those who know me, will now understand why i always wear brown trousers when flying 😉 😉

    If you’re of such a nervous disposition you’d never fly again if you actively read the global aviation incidents site

    Then again if you realise that things go wrong all the time , on a daily basis it might reassure you that the built in safety features are second to none .

    Then again ……..It might just be easier to take the Hindu approach to life ….. : )

    This is not the first time for time for Delta on this type.
    I could have been much more serious a was the below

    “An uncontained engine failure occurred at Pensacola Regional Airport (PNS) on July 06, 1996 during the takeoff run of Delta Airlines Flight 1288. Two passengers (a mother and her son) were killed when the compressor hub of the No.1 engine (P&W JT8D) failed, hurling debris (shrapnel) into the cabin. T

    Thanks for that @luganopirate for some reason the OP’s original link just wouldn’t work for me.
