BA 777 - Jet engine parts on Las Vegas runway indicate major failure

提交時間:
 
The National Transportation Safety Board said there was damage to the armored shell around the left engine's high-pressure compressor, and several 7- to 8-inch fragments of the compressor were found on the tarmac. No one was seriously injured when British Airways Flight 2276 screeched to a halt and the 157 passengers and 13 crew members escaped down evacuation slides as firefighters doused flames spewing from the engine beneath the wing of the Boeing 777.

This story says the pieces were found on the tarmac and not the runway. Me thinks NTSB said on the runway. There is a difference

Well, Webster's can say what they want but the accepted definition does not include the runway

If someone was talking airplanes and mentioned "tarmac" I always assumed they were talking about the runway. Maybe it's a regional thing?

Must be; I have always taken tarmac as ramp area. I haven't ever heard a runway classed as TARMAC until this post. Oh well, I guess I learned something today. LOL
