aviator_edb Posted April 22, 2008 Share Posted April 22, 2008 Well, I guess it happens eventually. My wife and I were flying home from St Lucia in the British West Indies. We had to take an ATR-72 from St Lucia to San Juan to catch a jet to Boston. Anyway, 15 minues after departure the pilot kills one of the engines and turns us around. I gotta tell you. Mentally I know the plane shoudl fly fully loaded one engine but when you are over the open ocean, looking out the window, seeing the ocean and seeing a windmilling, feathered prop it does cause things to pucker a little bit. Obviously we landed back in St. Lucia without further incident. Anyone else got any stories like this? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
