Holy Crap It's Good This Airplane Wasn't Flying When Its Engine Exploded...

Yesterday this Airbus A330 was zipping down the runway of Manchester Airport, UK, ready to take off and head to the Dominican Republic. And then, holy crap, its engine exploded.

Sat on that plane, the passengers must have been very, very, very relieved that it was still on the ground rather than in the air. Also, great control on the part of the pilot as he kept it together while the craft began to snake across the runway.

Yes RB211 Rolls Royce engines. Hardly engines exploding more like a bird strike. Could happen and does happen to lots of aircraft. It could have flown on one engine but if you don't have to why would you.
I question everything. I don't believe anything I'm told or anything I see. Prove it, or fuck off. And that's not me I see in the mirror in the morning.

Lucky escape for sure, a big sigh of relief from the passengers no doubt

Nothing punctured the wing, so the housing did it's job. Pilot reacted quickly.

So much for the check of the runway in between flights for junk.

Nice catch Will.
