28th Jul 2001, 15:36

Was out on the apron workin bout 10 o'clock last night when a JMC 757 departed for Tenerife, halfway down the runway I heard what sounded like a popping noise then the aircraft didnt sound the same after that but carried on anyway, but my companys frequency is the same as JMC ops and I heard them speaking to an engineer sayin indications seemed ok however the aircraft is now not returning to GLA for possibly another 12 hours late so I only presume something is wrong with the engine, anybody have a scooby doo what it was??? :confused:

Bird Strike I think. I understand one fan blade found damaged @ TFS.

You don't mention it but I sincerely hope you used the company frequency (or some other means) to pass on your observations! :rolleyes:
