Sounds more like the sort of thing that'd happen to one of those tatty GE engines.:}

Anyone else ever heard the quote from (EAL? ?) president (Not Borman) when asked why his airline preferred PW power and if he disliked GE

"I have nothing against GE, as a matter of fact , whenever I buy a light bulb, I always make sure that it's a GE"

It was Donald Nyrop of NWA, as quoted in Herman The German :cool:

Subsequently, GE travelers were forbidden to ride NWA except in dire emergencies.
