I don't know if anybody has noticed this or seen this particular MD-80 of Alaska Airlines, but on the number 2 engine side, the eskimo on the tail is totally distorted and odd looking, the lips are thick, and the face is scrunched into the upper right corner of the tail...has anybody seen this or know what happned?

During the landing/taxi sequence at seattle, the left main gear wheel hub experienced a fatigue fracture. the cracks which led to the fracture originated in the hub grease dam groove. the fracturing of the hub damaged other brake compenents, which allowed hydraulic fluid to leak onto a hot brake pad, where it was ignited.

 Big thumbs up
