Keel like this became a bigger deal than it needs to be. Engine flameouts/failures are one of the more common emergencies. Still exceedingly rare, but amount emergency’s they are so well trained for, and the aircraft are built to withstand much worse, that the passengers were likely always safe. Koodos to the pilots though. As “Simple” as this is, keeping a cool head in any sort of situation like this takes a certain person…

Yikes, I reckon a propeller failing would be a lot more scary than a jet for the passenger…

Yes correct

Yikes! If anything seeing a propellor stop is more terrifying because they are not as powerful as jet engines

Prop PLANES are able to fly with only one prop in use for example the regional express (REX) incerdent where one of the Props fell off over the National Park on the approach into sydney.
And the pilot landed saftley.

Sorry I think it was LQJ

Can’t be. No qantas aircraft registered LQI.

I’m imagining some aussies climb out onto the wing mod flight and start jerry rigging it back together so it keeps flying lol.

Oh whoops, my bad, it was VH-LQJ…
