Was this the flight on Sunday? I believe it was a flight to BWI and had an engine failure during the flight, not on the takeoff. It returned to PHL. I am not sure about this, so any confirmation out there?

Yeah, actually I was on Air Wisconsin 3971 PHL-DTW when that happened. It was taxiing when saw several fire/rescue vehicles racing the other way with lights and sirens. I'm glad everything turned out alright. I fly these DH8's to SBY all the time.
