Swiss a220 blows a donk in CDG

Haven't seen it reported here - happened on July 25th

Interestingly the BEA has resorted to the public to recover the pieces. Also interesting is that they have delegated this one to the NSTB. Is that a common occurence?

I suspect they delegated it to the NTSB because the engine is a PW geared fan engine which has had a number of issues and the US is the state of design for the engine. Delegation to the state of design is done sometimes even by sophisticated authorities when the issue appears to be design related. Delegation is allowed by mutual consent of the state of occurrence and the state asked to take on the investigation under section 5.1 of Annex 13 of the ICAO Treaty.

The article linked above confirms that.

PS That should be ‘the second article (in French) linked above’.

I am not quite sure I would call that blowing a donk. Not even sure from the article if they shut it down.

They did (I can confirm) and they might have spread some of the parts over France.
