Interesting. There was mention that an engine in a 747 could also be in use on a twin with ETOPS. Question: In the case of the bird strike on a 747, would the pilots not be more likely to simply shutoff the faulty engine knowing there have 3 more , whereas in a twin engine aircraft, they would be more likely to let the engine run even if it has les thrust than normal ? Do pilots know How much thrust is actually produced by an engine ? What sort of information do pilots have on the health of an engine ? If there is a bird strike, how can pilots know if the engine is viable or not ?
