Aviation safety experts said the aircraft suffered an uncontrolled and catastrophic engine failure. This type of phenomenon is extremely rare and occurs when the huge rotating disc inside the engine fails and breaks the armored housing around the engine, designed to prevent damage, John Cox, Aviation Safety Specialist and retired airplane pilots, who operate an aviation safety consulting firm, called the Safety Operating System.

“This unbalanced disk has a lot of power and is moving at several thousand revolutions per minute … and when you have so much centrifugal force, it needs to go somewhere,” he said in a telephone interview.

Cox said that pilots practice to control this type of event often and immediately turn off anything flammable in the engine, including fuel and hydraulic fluid, using a button.
