Thanks for your comeback, Air2gxs!
You're of course right, the correct word wouldn't be "major incident", as I didn't meant the necessity of some kind of accident due to the loss of the panel, but only some kind of further investigation... so let's call it an "issue"?
We all know G-BTSC's fate, hence lost parts might be a topic of increased attention. Second and more generally speaking, as a passenger and ground pedestrian, I definitely prefer aircrafts arriving at the destination gate with all the same parts they began their trip with (minus the fuel and some sewage...).
Don't want to create a big issue -- but since in this forum every delayed take off is tracked down right to the captains bad fish he had for lunch
, I just wondered if anyone took further notice and could provide some more information.
Just because we're all doting on aviation details...
