    It ain't so Mike, that is the #1 bearing exposed! The N1 cover is gone, looks more like a bearing, or oil pump gear failure. Just
    covering the back of a fellow A&P, God knows his management will not.

    Kev, thanks for the link. The input from other readers was really interesting. I flew MD-80s for most of my career at AA (low seniority means you fly older planes:(. I actually liked flying the 80s. They have (soon to be had at AA) the best First Class galley of any of the B737s and AB320, 321 group of a/c.
    Oh, and in 15 years, I had exactly 1 incident similar to this one. We had an engine go out right after take-off from STL. (Loud bang, then less engine noise--pilot shut down the damaged engine. No dramatic shots like in this video.) The pilot very calmly brought the plane back to the airport, and we landed without incident.

    I gotta go with chilokie1's assessment. Looks like failed bearing came apart.
    Just so glad they landed safely and no injuries. Kudos to the Pilots and flight crew...
