Delta passengers watched engine cover fall off at 28,000 feet

There are some things that we all know exist, but prefer to never see — like dead bodies, cold sores and the engines on airborne planes.

Passengers aboard Delta flight 762 experienced a shock when an engine cover fell off their plane mid-flight on Sunday afternoon, according to local news affiliate WTVF.

The flight from Atlanta to Chicago hit turbulence and had to make an emergency landing at Nashville International Airport after the right engine's outermost cover — or cowling — fell off at 28,000 feet.

Cabin lights came on about 45 minutes after takeoff when the cowling came off, striking part of the fuselage.

The pilot declared a state of emergency and landed at Nashville without any additional problems.

The Boeing 717 taxied to the gate and the flight's 109 passengers walked off the plane, with no reported injuries.

Passengers were provided food and beverages as they waited in the terminal for another aircraft, and Delta reached out to passengers "with a gesture of apology," the airline said.

The flight continued onto Chicago three hours later.

"Delta will fully investigate this episode as the safety and security of our customers and employees is always our top priority," the airline said in a statement.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
