Quoting EWRCabincrew (Reply 4): Also apparent civil stikes in TLV? Possible delays and cancellations as a result. According to our res system
Flying England support to be hit by Tel Aviv airport strike
A general strike will close Tel Aviv's main airport to most international flights from tomorrow and could lead to long delays for England fans travelling over for Saturday's Euro 2008 qualifier with Israel. The England team's flight will not be affected, however, as the general workers' union has promised to allow it to land.
The strike could last for days and with as many as 5000 England fans expected, many due on Thursday and Friday, chaos is a distinct prospect
They showed this briefly on the news last night. This was not just a simple aborted take-off, it was a major incident From what I understand, one engine blew up and scattered pieces all over the runaway. They showed a picture of the plane with what appeared to be a collapsed front landing gear. To me this is major news and I am surprised I can't info any info on it in the web.

Quoting DZ09 (Reply 8): They showed a picture of the plane with what appeared to be a collapsed front landing gear.
Thank You! I saw it briefly on tv last night and the picture didn't have the whole plane, and the angle was suggesting a collapsed landing gear, I remembered seeing the thread before hand, and ran to the computer thinking that the thread would be full of replies and pictures, but to my amazement it was more like people complaining about "the incident making the news" so I thought I saw just a bad angle etc.
Can anyone confirm the gear collapse, and if its true what are the extent of the damage to the AC? I will search for pictures, if anyone finds any I would appreciate if they can post it here.
I'm glad no one is hurt.
Thanks for the clarification CALMSP. I knew you or EWRCABINCREW would clarify.
I'm trying to find the video online, the way they showed it and the angle was very tricky to my eyes obviously. Thanks again for the clarification.
You know anything else about the a/c condition and how long will it be out of service. Thanks

Kudos to that EWR controller for handling the traffic backup during this situation. Very well trained and professionally done! Shows how vital it is keeping calm and doing your job when an anomaly pops up like this one.

Quoting EWRCabincrew (Reply 18): Very unnecessary and highly speculative. MH had one to out of ZRH (pics too), neither an accident or fatal. Totally uncalled for.
What is your problem?
They had an uncontained engine failure with pieces all over the place on takeoff. This is the absolute worst time to have such an incident and CO did a good job to keep the plane safe. Just last month an uncontained failure on takeoff (from luggage into the engine) led to a crash of a jet near my house at VNY.
Please, please, please explain to me why saying that they averted a catastrophe is uncalled for? I don't get it.
I'm a big CO fan, silver or gold depending on the year, but I've lost a little respect for you personally by that defensive attitude.
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
