Re: What would you do in this situation??
Lost a prop blade once on a turboprop, before we could even think, the out-of balance forces had ripped the engine out of it's mounts. When we landed, it was hanging by the wiring loom and assorted pipes.
If you lose a blade in a single-engined aircraft, you will almost certainly lose the engine as well - it isn't held in by much. If you lose the engine, you have about 1-30 secs to live (depending on altitude).
