1) Background to the photos
Today, FedEx Flight 280 was flying a daily route from KMEM to KFLL. On approach to KFLL, we lost an engine…it all went downhill from there.
2) Detailed Flight Information including servers, time, route
Training Server, KMEM-KFLL, 2300Z
We are at the gate, loading our cargo.
Look at that view of the gulf!
As we neared the coast of Florida, our number 2 engine started having problems.
Suddenly, it just gave out on us as we made the turn to KRSW for an emergency landing…
On final approach with one engine remaining…will we make it?
FedEx Flight 280 crashes within 10 nm of the runway threshold, bursting immediately into a ball of flames. Fortunately, the crew survived.
I hope you enjoyed the story!
