A Thomas cook A330 yesterday lost an engine on Takeoff and it was captured from two angles on camera. Interesting watch:

Hey Ro, wrap the links in tags.

Thanks a million, that solved it. I tried adding in "&feature=player_embedded" but that didn't seem to do much good.

 

Anyone know why the forum doesns't do this automatically anymore?

Cheers for the videos Ró. Looks like the crew knew exactly what they were doing, that rudder came on fast!

 

edit: Just realised that the rudder imput could have been automatic. Ró does the A330 have a TAC, similar to the 777?

I wonder who had to clean up the cabin.

No TAC on the 330 (or any other bus) the inicident was an engine surge as far as I'm aware, it didnt fail completely.

How often does Simon Lowe capture incidents in Manchester. I remember him getting the Thomson 757 with the bird strike.

I just did some research since I'm curious about that too, but, what I did find out was that the A320 series does not have that feature. I saw something about an "engine-out" assistance available for the A300/A310 however. To finish up, since the A320 and A330/A340 aircraft have such extreme similarities to help with the type ratings, I doubt that the A330/A340 have a TAC feature. This of course can be answered by Ró, because he would know better than we do!

My cousin visited Manchester Airport yesterday, so I will have to ask him if he saw that. What time of day was it?
