Default Passengers braced for crash before 'terrifying' emergency landing

Passengers on board a flight from San Francisco to Honolulu got quite a scare Tuesday when an engine covering apparently came off mid-flight.

This is all Trump's fault, right? If only he were stricter on Commercial Aviation, this wouldn't have happened.

He should have deported those gremlins.
Everyone knows that Gremliny doesn't send us it's best people. It sends us troublemakers and plane engine destroyers.

I was going to say that the cowling being missing, in and of itself, isn't really that big of a deal, although there would be some chance that it might have hit some other part of the plane after it departed the aircraft, causing unseen damage. However what I'm reading elsewhere is that the engine may have jettisoned a fan blade which took the cowling with it. That would be a bigger deal.
