This is dangerous, especially during take-off.
If a plane is taking off (heading up), and the cowling falls off, it is going to fall down or at a little bit of an angle, and should miss hitting any part of the plane.
The topic needs to be changed to ENGINE COWLING FALLS OFF OF AIRTRAN FLIGHT OPERATED BY RYAN INTERNATIONAL.
It was an AirTran flight, and AirTran takes legal (I believe) responsibilities of the aircraft.
While I must say I am impressed (seriously, no joke) with your accuracy, I suggest you head on over to Site Related to this post (http://www.airliners.net/discussions/site_related/read.main/23676/) and see if you can show support for a grammatically accurate a.net.
