What can happen when an engine goes BANG

Recommended Posts

this is what happens when the high pressure turbine lets go during a

 

full power engine run. and turbine disc departed the left engine,

 

cut through the lower fuselage fairings, punctured the lower wing skin

 

on the right hand side causing a fuel leak, before almost

 

completly penetrating the right engine tailcone fairing.
