That the 3 engine version?

There is a crew chief that has a little explaining to do. Not that he installed the engine, but that is who they will blame at first.

Pilot did a neutral drop into reverse.

Same damn thing happened to me in my pos '68 Maverick back in high school.

Proof positive that amphetamines and aircraft don't mix.

Crew Chiefs don't do engines anymore.


Really? When did this change? I loved rolling out and rolling in a fresh F100 PW100/220

Is there a "HOLY FUCKING SHIT, ENGINE MISSING!" warning light on the control panel?

IIRC, the B1 had problems in the early days of losing engines, literally.

I don't know, but it's from my town. Abilene, TX at Dyess AFB.

Looks like the pilot let his wife back the plane out of the driveway.

"But I didn't see the lightpole."

What's the replacement cost on one of those engines?


ETA: Found these:

# In October 1990, a B-1B (86-0128), from the 384th Bomb Wing, 28th Bomb Squadron, McConnell AFB, while flying in a low level training route in eastern Colorado, lost an entire engine (although the crew was unaware the engine had actually departed the aircraft). It was later determined the engine had suffered catastrophic failure, in which engine blades cut through the engine mounts, causing the engine to detach from the aircraft.


and this little gem

In May 2006, a B-1B (86-0132) from the 7th Bomb Wing, 9th Bomb Squadron, Dyess AFB, Texas, upon recovery from an 11-hour ferry flight to Diego Garcia landed "gear-up". The Air Force investigation concluded that the pilots "forgot to lower the landing gear". A resulting fire was quickly extinguished and the crew escaped through the top hatch unharmed.[38] Four days later the aircraft was raised and its landing gear deployed. The aircraft damage was estimated at nearly $8 million.[39]

If they are doing a three engine ferry, why would the nacelle stay open? Does the nacelle hook to the motor? I wonder what the MIAS is when open like that.

copilot: "We just lost engine 4."

pilot: "Well reset the switches and see if you can fire it back up again."

copilot: "No, i'm afraid you don't understand. We've literally just lost the entire fucking engine."

Actually, Connie paid to have it recovered, after the NTSB and FAA got done with it, most of it is back in service. It was after rotation out of ORD.

Weak scan?


USAF does have a history of weak scans...look at the C5 that crashed, FE allowed a good engine to be pulled back and a bad engine pushed while low and slow.
