Wow, when I read "dropped the right hand thrust reverser", I didn't think that quite meant literally dropped ...

As Its said, Wow. I don't know that i've ever heard of that ever. Imagine if that had come off in flight wonder what the ramifications would have been?

This is one of the oldest airliners flying. What is the worth of a 43-year-old 732? A few hundred thousand dollars? I guess even a lost tyre almost means its an insurance writeoff;-)

Maybe the thrust reverser originally fell off the back of a lorry and now it's continuing the tradition?
