It would have been fine had they been macadamia nuts. Peanuts jam up any engines. :melting:

This incident seems to have also had a failure of the 3rd stage LPT blade...


"The incident flight was the sixth flight of the aircraft since it's first flight on January 26, 2019." Man, that doesn't look good! The incident on the Korean Air aircraft was also on a fairly recent engine. Was there any design change put in production recently on the 3rd stage LPT blades or in their vicinity?

Do Korean passengers also toss coins into the engines for "luck"?

The data plate seems fairly robust.....so far.

Do you know where the LPT lives? You would see damage in many prior stages.
