I hate people.

Burn off fuel, brief the pax, allow them to put everything they need in their pockets"passport drugs etc..... stow everything allow them to call family"its all ok, I'll call you on the ground, love ya honey, etc, get everybody calmed down........ Also allows all emergency services on the ground to have ducks in a row, ambulance, fire, buses to get them to terminal or triage area, etc.......this will hopefully be a none issue

Always wondering why there were two gear levers in the cockpit, haha
I wonder if the crew remembered to wear their deice boots, flying to Canada in the winter and all :rolleyes:
Maybe the winter tires weren't designed for the Madrid heat

Had a reporter use those exact words in reference to having a gear issue on my way home this summer. It’s not a localized event it seems haha.

What was the sequence here? Tire debris blew forward and was ingested by #1?

No need for a "push- back" if the A/C has back-up LG !!!

BTW, Have you ever heard how loud the back-up horn is on an A/C when they do that ?

That appears to have been the case - tire debris could travel in almost any direction with a great deal of energy.

Always fly a stable approach - it's the only stability you'll find in this business

Can these 767s dump fuel? I’m going to assume they couldn’t as they held for hours?

They dump it into the engine and burn it off.

It’s a crappy way to explain to the public that thanks to dual wheels you can land and taxi in without every passenger being killed or worse. I expect the news agencies were told there are redundancies on every system of a modern airliner, including the wheels.

Well, the 67 has two wheels on the nose and four per side on the mains.

Looks like a retread blew off, the engine ingested something big enough to ruin every fan blade.

Only some of the AC B767 FINs have dump capabilities. This one did not.

The 76 has a great power to weight ratio but is there any word that the engine was shut down and they circled with one engine inop burning fuel. There is a real lack of information. I'm surprised the internet trolls didn't blame Boeing.

It is my understanding that they were single engine. From the pictures of the blades there were probably significant engine vibrations. There are also passenger photos of significant torching, presumably when the debris went through the core. No mention if there was power loss on it before it was shut down.
