Yes, I see, we'd need independent ignition and fuel systems for each turbine plus a separate door and actuator system to drop them into the airstream independently. Plus a fire warning system, fire extinguishing systems and N1 indicators...

Default and...

Then we would need to look at the switches. contactors, and relays, too.

Also would need to account for insulating the cavity that contains the turbine for heat, sound, and the potential for an unconfined turbine failure...not to mention the the separate fuel system for the turbine and preventative measures to ensure that no kerosene gets into the main tanks or gasoline into the turbine...

That's just a short list but it's enough to get started!

The NTSB published a final report on the SQ-12 engine power loss:

Short version: All the injectors on one circuit breaker.

Well, duhhh.

It would be amusing to think about all those guys who poo poo alternative engines, and then throw something like that, with such obviously un-thought-out design work, on a 'traditional' engine and call it good. But for how scary it is...

Let's treat the information in the spirit of aviation safety culture...lessons to be learned, "There but for the grace of God", etc.

Too often, "duh" is only obvious in retrospect.

The docket should be interesting, when available.
