They need to come up with a relocation of the Cowl latches to a more visible position.
|Quoting Dalmd88 (Reply 3):|
Has happened to a few A320 operators. The latches are very hard to get to unless you lay on the ground under the engine. Makes it easy to miss it on a flight crew preflight if one was not completely latched.

Well youve got to think that if the industry are so aware of it as a design fault, (awkward to access - awkward to check) that someone is ultimately going to have to take a stand before we have a catastrophe occur.
A Sky Airline Airbus A319-100, registration CC-AIC performing flight H2-112 from Santiago to Copiapo (Chile) with 144 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff from Santiago's runway 35R when engine access doors of the left hand engine (CFM56) opened and separated from the aircraft, the crew continued departure, stopped the climb at FL150 and returned to Santiago for a safe landing on runway 35L about 25 minutes after departure.
