    Almost exactly what caused the crash at Kegworth! The pilot reported a fire warning in one engine, but the good one was shut down. ISTR he got the blame.

    It is now reported that maintenance procedures were not completed before the aircraft was released for flight:

    Link: BBC News - Heathrow emergency landing: Engine doors 'left unlatched'

    ...Air accident experts said the coverings - the fan cowl doors - broke off and punctured the right engine's fuel pipe, damaging the aircraft's systems.

    A fire then broke out in the right engine of the Airbus A319 British Airways flight to Oslo...
