The aircraft had flown 2,979 cycles since its last engine inspection. That's less than half of the 6500 cycles between inspections. A push is being made to require inspections every 1,000 cycles.

The engine failed after the crew increased power to minimize time in expected turbulence. Just after they pushed the power up, a loud bang was heard on the CVR.

The fan damage looks exactly like flight 328. Are there pics like you posted of 328 of that engine damage? I'd love to see it even though I'd not be able to know a damned thing about it.

I remember when Iron Maiden's Flight 666, Ed Force One got damaged a few years ago. Those suckers are huge. You just don't get the scope when you take the passage into one from that tube.

I do believe there are gremlins that tear away airplanes but that's rare these days. They've gone into hiding with all the bad press.

The failure method was the same on both engines. Boeing started working on a redesign of the cowling after 1175, but it's going to take time to change a major feature like that.

The aircraft involved, N772UA, has been repaired enough to go from Denver to Victorville today. It will most likely be stored, and eventually scrapped.
