Field Goal

Chicago,  October 28, American Airlines Flight 383
An NTSB report issued a week after the fire said one of the fractures on the turbine disk of the engine was "consistent with fatigue cracking." Takeoff was aborted due to the "uncontained engine failure" that led to fuel pooling under the plane's right wing, which then burst into flames, authorities said.
One piece of the turbine disk went through the inboard section of the right wing, over the fuselage and into a UPS warehouse facility more than a half-mile away. Another piece was found about 1,600 feet away, but it was still on O'Hare property, authorities said.
