Engine cowling problem

Fly High English logo.

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


A Boeing 767, was en route to its destination and 25 minutes from landing when a problem with engine no.2 caused the engine cowling to be torn off. A passenger who saw the incident passed along the information to the crew who then alerted their company. However, because the plane was close to its destination the captain decided to continue to their destination and landed without incident 25 minutes later. The plane was left with maintenance after disembarking the passengers.
