The TSA is investigating a trio of reports of planes in trouble

Hognose Investigates The Engine-Out Passenger Experience
By Senior Correspondent Kevin "Hognose" O'Brien
I recently had an argument with another aviator about some
recent news stories that hyperventilated over a couple of recent

rather than turning back or finding an alternate. He more or less
agreed with the news stories, and was willing to hang the captains
by their thumbs (which hasn't happened).
