Funny Peculiar...

Drudge has a link up to this Daily Mail article, and a bunch of others.  A flight from Heathrow to Oslo was interrupted because the left engine nacelle covers popped open on takeoff.  The pilot decided to return, and while on approach, the right hand engine caught fire.

I'm not an engineer, but I have spent a significant part of my life in and around airliners and transports.  Two engines going south at  the same time are extremely rare.  The officials are calling it bird strike.  Maybe, but after the beheading murder, I'm wondering if something else might be in play.

Am I paranoid?  Dunno...
