The two engines off the TK B737 which crashed on finals in AMS on 25.02.2009. Both preacriously placed far from each other. Imagine the impact which is strong enough to throw these heavy powerplants so far from the plane and from each other. Surprisingly, the fans looks more or less alright. (Canon 50D + Canon 100-400 L)

The force didnt cause these engines to land in the place that they did.
there are pins that hold the engins to the pylons.
and when a certain amount of force is exerted the pins are designed to break and eject the engines away from the plane.

The engine seemed alright, but the case was totally damaged.

Mind the gyroscopic forces. not sure about, just a guess why they are where they are.

He didn't say anything about the force that was involved in removing the engines. He was expressing the amount of force in the crash by how far away these are from the crash site.
The intact fan blades can be an indercation that these engines had stopped sometime before impact.

Looks like at least the left engine wasnt running on impact. The fan blades are pretty intact.

Left engine was DEFINITELY RUNNING, so was the right; cockpit crew (3! persons on that day) noted they were going down and applied full throttle, only it was too late, they were too low to recover, unfortunately.
Cause was a faulty radio altimeter indicating they were at only a few feet AGL, and autothrottle responding and consequently cutting power almost fully; cockpit crew noted (gradual) engine rollback too late.

They don't look far apart from each other at all
