Is that engine actually on fire or is that how it would normally look if you remove the cowling during operation?

How lucky do you have to be to have that land that close to your house and not hit? Actually, I'm wondering if it was moved there.

So, if that would have happened about half way there, would they have been able to make Hawaii without a problem?

We got asked to check our yards for pieces for the NTSB. That cowling ring hit and destroyed that poor guy's truck.
