Good thing that everything turned out okay and no one is hurt. Poor MD-11.

Why is it when an MD-11 has a problem, it’s 99% of the time an engine fire?
Also I’m glad it landed safely!

Most likely if the engine will be fixed or replaced. But can’t really speculate since I have not read the article. 👍

United 232 was a completely different animal. A hard landing is not bad, unless in the extream, which United 232 was, but for very diffrent reasons…
