Slight Problem on the Flight

Back in 2004 an engine fell off a 33 year old 747 cargo jet while it was over Lake Michigan. The plane landed safely with no injuries and the crew, while they knew that they had lost an engine, didn't know they had lost an engine till they landed.

I'd just like to say this sort of thing hardly ever happens.
