OK guys, I am kinda tired of the discussion on 2 or 4 engines and the security issues that it raises. I flew a lot of times over the Atlantic on 2 engine aircrafts without any second thoughts.
For me, in theory, the 3 engine design appears to be the safest. I may be wrong.
I know that the 3 engine concept is being put aside for efficiency reasons but what about its security... Please no discussion on the safety records of the DC10, MD11 and L-1011. I am looking for a theoretical answer.
The floor is open to the discussion
