    I wonder if the engine sucked up something that didn't agree with it. Wouldn't be the first time FOD caused severe damage to an aircraft on takeoff.

    Given how long the GE90 has been in service, one would think that any major flaws would have cropped up already.

    Then again United 232 was using a proven, established engine, but just one with a manufacturing defect.
    A bit of lax maintenance can bring down the most proven engines...

    Definitely uncontained : / You can bet something departed that engine. Maybe a severed fuel line too. If you look closely at the video a large dust cloud is blowing away from the plane. It appears that thrust was still up on one for a bit after the rejection. This could happen if the afflicted engine FADEC is cut off from the cockpit (as it did on the A380 uncontained incident).

    It looks like they did a great job getting everyone off. Nobody seems to have opened the near wing exits, thank god.

    Also, you can see from the smoke plume on the video that the fire didn't break out until the plane was stopped.

    If it is a drone perhaps it will turn out that it is a useful tool for the fire/emergency team.

    *Sigh*

    As usual, people had to stop and get their carry on luggage. One of these days, people are going to die because of that.

    If you look @ the end of the video, you can see the left engine is mangled.

    It looks like a major uncontained engine failure.

    And is that a drone hovering at the very end of the video?

    Flight is BA2276 and the registry appears to be G-VIIO.

    Pop the slides and get the heck off. Thank God everyone did.
