It's amazing how the aircraft still maintained a positive rate of climb while one engine was self-destructing!
Good stuff Matt!!I'd have to look it up, but I believe that Part 25 Transport Category aircraft are certified to clear a 400ft obstacle with an engine out. And I know I'm not telling The Great Gazoo anything, but all Part 25 aircraft are certified for single engine operation at max gross weight. But that would be a pilot challenge wouldn't it.
I flew a full motion 767 simulator with dual hydraulic failure and a single engine out. The flight controls input a 40-60lb rudder deflection force. I was sweating by the time I lined up for the runway from exertion and concentration.
Lesson. Never let an engineer fly your airplane when a real man can do the job better.
