I was watching a program on television one day and saw a pilot doing a demonstration with a Falcon 50, were he brought the # 1 engine to idle to simulate an engine failure. When he did this the airplane did not appear to be effected by the idling engine and the pilot explained how well the airplane handled on just 2 engines and how the effects of the #1 engine were not even felt by the passenger's and crew. So I was wondering even though the MD
-11 has the #1 and #3 engines mounted below the wings, would it react similar to the Falcon if the MD
-11 lost the #1 or #3 engine at any part of the flight ?
Airplanes are only as good as the people who fly&fix them.
