I responded to you and said the engine would be shut down. The initial explosion would cause the pilots to go to checklist and a burning engine would not be left running. That video was after the explosion of course. That engine was not being supplied fuel at that point. It was on fire! I have never worked with a Pratt and Whitney brand, but the Rolls and GE cowling (nacelle) is a vital part of the fire suppression system, and of course it was gone so the system wouldn’t work properly. Pratt and Whitney guys would no that better though. Not familiar with their suppression system at all
Thanks that makes sense. Are those the three major engine manufacturers, Pratt/Whitney, Rolls, and GE?
