    Great video and editing, but… I think “Exploded” is a bit too dramatic. “Unexpected Surge” (or another term that I forget) is more like it. Whatever it was – was apparently a fully contained failure and one that pilots regularly train for. While never expected, it is not a rare thing. This flight was below the critical V1 and made a safe stop, all without a lot of drama. Please… Let’s be a bit more careful about the overly strong descriptive words that we use. “Exploded” is truly overkill here, despite the great video. Thanks.
