I've had a T-56 turboprop mounted on a C-130 go BOOM! as the turbine busted loose.

It was the #1, which I just happened to be standing just outboard and 30 ft in front of. It was dusk, so I got to see bright chunks of turbine shoot out the back of the motor like a huge shotgun.

We were doing a power check and as soon as we went to the wall it came loose. I started babbling incoherently on the mike to shut it down. (Couldn't remember which engine # it was in the heat of the moment, so it flustered me.) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

I still have a little plastic bag of melted turbine bits around here somewhere. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
