    Seth any sign of the atc timeline? I think they rang the crash phone very quickly after the actual engine failure before the crew even said they were stopping and they were rolling when the crew requested them.

      Full set of docs is at https://dms.ntsb.gov/pubdms/search/hitlist.cfm?docketID=59741&CurrentPage=2&EndRow=30&StartRow=16&order=1&sort=0&TXTSEARCHT=. That might have what you’re looking for.

      Worth noting that the crew does mention they were surprised the Tower didn’t inform them about the fire, but the trucks were moving pretty quickly it seems.

    PS skipper’s second last trip before retirement but after this he announced, “I’m done with flying. Someone else can do Barbados.” He actually went on the Barbados trip as a passenger

    @RunwayGirl Much to learn from all these events. More access to quality training always helps

    Interesting comment that they all thought it was a burst tyre. I had a rejected take off once after an odd noise which i also thought was a burst tyre, turned out to be a birdstrike causing 3-4 damaged fan blades in engine 1.
