Fuel or Engine?[edit]

Im sure it was the engines that blew out not that fuel ran out wasn't it?


I think you are confusing the term 'flame out' with blowing out. 'Flaming out' is aviation jargon that simply means 'topped working'; the engines flamed out because they ran out of fuel. An understandable mistake to make from a fairly misleading term. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 07:29, 5 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
