Sorry to interrupt, but would someone please tell me what "WO" means when referring to an accident or incident involving an aircraft? Thank You

Means they've taken the aircraft as a loss (not going to be airworthy again).

WA

I think you got your answer from others. I just think that the topic title is funny (and vague)  Smile

Thank you all. Wasim it also might be the sound the passengers make as the plane is becoming a W/O.
