I often wonder why they dont make clear cowlings...like all those nifty appliances and cell phones...and honk if your computer has a window in the side.

Maybe some pimpdaddy neon light strips inside for night flights....hummmbaby

Because they don't want you to see the parts that sometimes come loose and fall off during flight. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The scary bit is not even the engine, because that will operate just fine (for one flight) without a cowl. What is scary is the airflow disturbance caused by the top cowl and how it will effect the stall characteristics of the wing behind it.

geez youd be doing the Chris Tucker (fifth Element, Rush Hour Two) eyeball wide stare at all the ground crew when, if, you got back on the ground after an incident like that.

(He 280 made a few flights like this AFTER the first one, when it was noted fuel was leaking and accumulating in cowl)

I'd be digging around in that pouch in the seat in front of me looking for the complimentary parachute...the one they keep under all those soiled magazines.

And then, of course, there's the question that hasn't been posed yet:

Where's the rest of the cowling?

Has it pulled a "Donnie Darko" on some poor innocent schmuck?

This is from airliners.net. I'm not sure if this is the same plane.

I have a friend who works in aircraft maintenance for a 'major airline'.

He keeps sending me insider pics of things that happen throughout the industry. Buckling wings on airbus' the rudder remains of the AirTransat plane flying from Cuba, terminal misshaps while positioning planes etc etc etc. Woo! Scary stuff - be sure.

Salute

That's one of the downsides of deregulation of the airline industry. A lot of the safety issues are now in the hands of airlines themselves. And with the cutthroat competition, the pressure is on to cut costs everywhere, including in maintenance and inspection.
