25 nautical miles northeast of McBrick VOR, LegoLift 338, a 737-200, suffered a catastrophic rapid decompression when its roof peeled off. Due to impressive piloting skills, the plane was able to land back at McBrick International Airport.
Chanel 8 Action News: This just in. LegoLift flight 338 has suffered major structural damage and was barely able to land. So far, two are confirmed dead and several more are seriously injured. Stay tuned for updates...
NTSB examiner Keith Johanson leads NTSB examiner Ted Smith and NTSB FAA liaison John McFlark in a detailed investigation of the accident.
The NTSB believes this accident was the result of metal fatigue resulting in catastrophic structural failure and depressurization, similar to Aloha Airlines flight 243. The accident could likely have been prevented with better maintenance practices.
Reminds me of Aloha airlines flight 243, in which the front half of the roof peeled off. A flight attendant was sucked out of the plane and killed, but no other deaths followed. In fact, it was a 737-200!! 5/5.
Love how much effort you have putted into representing this build. :)
Nice effects also.
However i have another theory on what caused the accident. Could it be because the plane was made out of plastic ? :P
