In an ironic twist it turns out that nine months after its March delivery to Pan Am that year, the same 707 was almost written off in an aborted take-off at Sydney Kingsford-Smith airport,Australia on Dec 1, 1969.<p>

N892PA

Note the damage to the Nbr 2 engine/pylon during this earlier accident.

Wondered if you'd seen that yet! Great to see you on here again brother. For the sake of all on this board, those of us that witnessed what Chris went through - well - horrific doesn't begin to describe it. The NTSB prelim mentions debris coming from the aircraft after rotation: it was in fact the #2 engine departing (and taking out the #1 along with it) the wing after the mains left the ground. What Chris won't tell you because he's too modest and humble - but these guys survived one of the worst possible scenarios you can imagine in a four engine heavyweight aircraft. I can't say enough about Chris - and his crew's - terrific airmanship and professionalism. This should be a case study on how to survive the unimaginable nightmare scenario.

Best man-hug ever seeing you at the hospital by the way. Give me a shout later
