Hi guys,

Just searching through the database and i found this thread about the AA A300's:

http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/400503/6/

Do you think that this has anything to do with it?

Obviously, the FBI etc didn't take a look at the safety record!!

Regards

Dan

Interesting post EG...however there doesn't seem to be a pattern in the similarity if incidences involved....I'm curious about the engine failure at Philly, but right away ask myself how often the same things happen on other models, and whether there's any mathmatical proof the GE engine on the A300-600 R is more prone to such incidences.

Thanks for the post.

I bet that they will ban the A300 from the skies like they did the Concorde.

I bet they won't, if they did why not ground B747-100's now we seem to know what happened to TWA 800? 100 still flying with no modifications to prevent a repetition, even if the chances of a repeat are extremely small.
Concorde was grounded because it could be, a tiny fleet, carrying a tiny, though very lucrative, number of pax. No disruption to world air traffic.
Anyway, although it's very early to speculate, my money would be on the attention being on the GE engines rather than the airframe.

aviation term:

loosing an engine = the engine stops working
loosing an engine does NOT mean dropping it

GE CF6 has been reliable. And is by far the most common 744 engine as well.

If this ended up being confirmed as engine failure, that means majority of 744 will be grounded as well as well as some MD-11.

Thanks!

I wasn't sure if that was a term of art, or if they just meant that the engine fell off.
