Ok, so I’ve lastly experienced the entire listing! I would love to state that where I have actually created ‘validated blown engine’ etc, I just suggest that I have validated that is what the proprietor states. Although for some I have actually found some extra info (e.g photos) & published the web links that substantiates this. I’ve additionally corrected some unclear or incorrect web links & added name adjustments. Where no links are given, see original list. Numerous of the situations are from failed major bearings! As well as a couple of engines damaged by an injector falling short & a pair by oil pump failures! In my following post I have divided out the keys failures from the RB failures etc, in addition to eliminated dead linked ones & simply wrong info, see my message below. For some reason I seem to have a lot of time atm machine! Anyhow, this checklist is a straight copy of the positions of the original checklist in the op. I am adding new/newly found situations to the listings in my adhering to blog post.
