    Ground crew were conducting an engine trim at night when a 18 lb. piece of the N1 compressor liberated itself by way of the No 1 fuel cell. The plane exploded. Everyone survived but two were treated in Izmir, Turkey and released and one was evacuated to Wiesbaden, Germany and remained in the burn clinic for close to 30 days.
