    The judge that gets this case should throw it out and sanction the attorney(s) that filed it.

    Obviously! The fact that it took 13 years and probably a few engine swaps for this to happen, notwithstanding...

    14:32:35.6 CAM [sound of click]
    14:32:35.7 HOT-1 which one?
    14:32:36.3 HOT-2 oh I didn't twist it. there we go.

    (The 767 fire handles are pulled to cut off fuel flow but must be twisted to discharge the fire agent. It took these guys at least 30 secs to work that out).

    Now, this is what I call "uncontained":

    Disk fragment “ A” was recovered about 2,935 ft south of the uncontainment location at a UPS building. One fragment penetrated through the inboard section of the right wing, severed the main engine fuel feed line, breached the fuel tank, traveled up and over the fuselage, and landed about 3,000 ft away.

    In related news, apparently a "discrete dirty white spot" is a thing.
