Yep - I remember it like yesterday. I'd just left the M1 North that Sunday night heading to nearby Burton-on-Trent, when the news broke on air. My immediate reaction in those post-Lockerbie days was "Oh, Christ! Not another one!" Within minutes, every other vehicle heading east on the (old) A50 was an emergency response vehicle.

As the Trolley Dolly article says, the real tragedy was that most pax were fully aware that the problem was in the Left engine. If in doubt, SPEAK UP!!!
