And yet the Kongers will stand in line to buy HKA cheap tickets?!?

Not that CX is any better, HAECO regularly damages CX aircraft with their own version of the Walking Dead maintenance zombies. The few gweillos left in CX ENG keep the whole operation from turning to shambles. I loathe the day the same is true on the pilot side.

Not superior, just far more likely to be competent.

Never seen an engine dropped before, have you?

I believe Pan Am dropped a 747 engine once. Kalitta even managed to drop one inflight.

Ouch.

Lets hope no "unseen" damage to the pylon itself a la American 191.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Americ...nes_Flight_191

From an examination of the detached engine the NTSB concluded that the pylon attachment had separated as the result of damage incurred before the crash.[7] Investigators looked at the aircraft's maintenance history and found that its most recent service was eight weeks before the crash, during which this particular engine had been removed from the aircraft for repairs. The pylon, the rigging holding the engine onto the wing, had been damaged during the procedure.

Same thing came to my mind - the Chicago DC10 (AA191). I seem to remember the NTSB discovered they were using fork-lift trucks to support engines on changeover rather than the manufacturers approved procedure. Apparently to speed up the process!

I've heard speculation that the front end hoist failed.
I'm not an engineer.

"Damn, usually those bits you forgot to disconnect stop it from doing that... - Should we mention it in the shift changeover? Maybe they wont notice?!"
