Cool Aircraft Accident of the Month

Not that this really has anything to do with school, but…yeah.

I started reading NTSB accident reports about three weeks ago, sort of as an armchair speculator to see how well I could determine a cause from the preliminary report, and partly because as a pilot, I now have a morbid fascination with how (and in what manner) people manage to break airplanes.

A cargo-configured 747-100 wins the Cool Accident of the Month Award for losing an engine over Lake Michigan.
