Anatomy of Catastrophe: Kegworth Plane Crash

What happens when one of the two engines on your airliners catches on fire? And the pilots shut down the wrong engine?

Passenger on British Midland Flight 92 reflecting on hearing the pilot announce he was shutting down the right engine: “We were thinking: ‘Why is he doing that?’ because we saw flame coming out of the left engine. But I was only a bread man. What did I know?”
