    Let's see here! The flight has an engine failure because of an unknown reason. Get's it going again...continues to it's destination and has another engine failure, get0s it going again......has another engine failure and secures the engine and continues to it's destination and lands "SAFELY".....now that is what I call a company man. He saved the company a divert and lost revenue and made it by the grace of God !

    Is that about right? To use a word.....what a jerk!

    Jerk? Just imagine if he didn't make it safely. He didn't want to become another 'Phoenix Rising' on the Sahara. Can't say if I blame him. Don't forget, while approaching Europe, you may start yer decent and fly over three-four different countries until you reach yer destination, even from FL28.

    You're probably correct considering if they refueled where they flew out of.

    Fuel contamination seems most likely, as LL mentioned when you consider where they flew out of. Anyway, whatever happened I’m sure glad it ended up the way it did. That could have turned a bad situation into a tragic one. :eek:

    The question should be is why did a crew continue instead of landing at the next nearest airport. If the second engine failed it would have been a major crash with international coverage!.......

    Maybe they didn't want to land in a perceived war zone or unstable country/environment. Besides, Brussels, the 'Capitol' of the Globalist NWO, full of un-elected elitist bureaucrats, thinks EVERYBODY loves them? Ha! Besides, good time to do an engine out, left then right check ride huh?

    He truly did make it in on a wing and a prayer. Any engine failure even if you somehow managed to restart the engine indicates a possible MAJOR problem. Then have a flame out on a different engine??? Does sound like a fuel contamination Should have landed at the nearest airport and sorted it out with the first engine failure. Of course that would mean a diversion and airline $$$ spent so that probably played into his decision. But three engine failures and made it back safely I would be at church that night thanking the good Lord. If there was a dual engine failure we would have had a major catastrophe, should have diverted. This sounds like simulator stuff not real world. He was pushing the envelope and thank God made it back safely.

    Not trying to be picky Rich, but wouldn't this be two engine failures rather than a dual engine failure.
    Sully had a dual engine failure, his flight didn't last nearly as long!!

    Hey Biggies

    Which ever way you say it this was a lucky flight. They made it by the grace of God!

    Yes Sully was a one of a kind and he had some luck a lot of skill and losing two engines on a twin jet in that area and all survived will always in my mind an amazing.
