Appears to have occurred at about FL180 in the climb. Total time airborne about 25 minutes.

That combination has been out of production for about 15 years, so it's pretty much a given we're talking a high time engine.

Sounds like an engine failure, not an “uncontained engine failure”. Click bait.

"NTSB investigating a reported uncontained engine failure from Sept. 5, Delta Airlines flight 1418, as it departed Atlanta bound for Orlando"

From Twitter handle @NTSB_Newsroom. Haven't posted much so can't include link.

The Bloomberg report on the incident suggests that they understand what an uncontained engine failure is and that this was indeed one, quoting that it's "at least the fourth" since August 2016, which is in the right ballpark.

And Northwest Airways also had over 70 757s that were acquired by Delta. All P&W-powered, I believe.

The also have a fleet of Pratt powered 757-300s they inherited from Northwest (IIRC, the only 757-300/PW2000s built). Unless they recently retired some, they have over 200 PW2000 powered 757s.

Current active fleet is around 120 B752s and 15 B753s, not including a bunch in storage.
