Fort Hood Murders, one year ago today

Ace of Spades HQ has a nice salute to them.

They were murdered (minimally allegedly) by a Physician who should be on trial for Treason as well as murder.

Respect and condolences to the families of those murdered, thank you for their service.

CNN — Qantas, Australia’s national airline, grounded its Airbus A380 fleet indefinitely after part of a plane’s engine cover fell off in flight Thursday.

“The engine cover fell off”.  That’s like explaining death as turning very pale, neglecting to mention the heart stopped.

The engine cover fell off because the engine shucked some turbine blades.  One of the pictures in the CNN report is of holes in the top of the wing over then #2 engine which appear to be going up.

Good for Quantas for handling it professionally and safely.
