Engine Failure

  • Trevor Morris
  • Interview by: Jess Boydon


Obviously the pilot's gotta be used to flying

a four-engine aircraft

on less than four engines,

so what happened, we'd fly around on the circuit,

he'd fly on three engines

and he'd fly on two engines,

and then we'd do a circuit

and then he'd do another circuit.

On this occasion we flying on two engines,

just about to land and one of the engines conked out

which we were flying on one.

The effect with that is obviously with an engine

on one side, then working

and as the aircraft pulled right over,

swung right over towards the control tower,

whipped the radio aerial off

and luckily the pilot was able to restart the engine

or if not, we'd have all been killed.
