Looks fine. They really should concentrate on making stronger windows.

Yay! A new episode of Seconds From Disaster is on the way! Love that show.

US commercial air travel has become way too safe. This was like the first fatality in a decade.This is a serious problem for air disaster autists like myself.

Thank doG for third-world commercial air travel. Those planes are always dropping like flies. Fantastic.

Like the Algerian plane crash last week that killed 250 people.

It's odd that Southwest has had 2 fan failures in 18 months. I get to take apart the fans on the jets I work on a fairly regularly basis to inspect for exactly this kind of failure, rich people are very important and their safety is paramount. After I put it all back together I'll admit I'm never really at ease until it goes on a long flight and has no issues. Fucking airplanes. This is the shit that disrupts my sleep. I hope to divest myself of any knowledge or experience sooner rather than later. I just hate everything about it these days.

Is it just like a visual inspection of the turbine blades, or do you like X-ray them or something?

Some of those fractures in the blades are tiny, microscopic, like invisible. You can't even see the cracks, but then one day out of the blue the cracks open up and the blades go flying apart and kill a bunch of people. You should think about that... a lot... at night, when you're trying to sleep.

It's usually an eddy current inspection performed by a certified inspector with specialized equipment. I've never found a cracked blade but I've found worn or damaged parts a few times.

It's all eddy currents and ball bearings.

So how many people have you killed?












I'd also like to hear about your plane inspecting job.

I’ll bet you have an ultimate set of tools. Like really cool stuff like @THE FEZ MAN ‘s tools, but all neat and tidy, and not tossed around haphazardly like FEZ MAN’s, because he’s a slovenly autistic bum.

I haven't been involved in any fatal incidents unless you consider a pilot that keeled over from a massive heart attack in the cockpit about 30 minutes out from Honolulu my fault.
