That decision was severely questioned at the time, and IIRC the crew stated that they thought the engine had merely flamed out. Lots of people refused to buy that explanation, and I never heard the outcome.

Pretty hard to believe they dropped to 2,000 considering Deming is at 4,300’ and TUS is at 2,300’. If they’re referring AGL, the two-engine ceiling has to above 10,000’. Continuing on 2 was legal, if worthy of a discussion.

Engine out, yes. Engine off... you don't know what plumbing, wire, or structural parts left with the motor.

You would think it required a lot of nose down trim?

I took an ice ball in #1(72) in ATL one dark and stormy, continued to DTW at 220. When questioned why, pointed out my alt. was CLE.
