Hey, did you miss something important?  The photo taken by a passenger on the flight (apparently) showed the INBOARD side of the "starboard" engine with part of the cowling open or missing.  FAA says the OUTBOARD cowling was  "loose" and didn't mention the photo.

What's up?

Note:  We think it is possible but unlikely that the photo shown in the Airnation blog wasn't Flight 309.  The report was input by the Airnation Social Hanger administrator, Ken Holland, including the photo. Social Hanger is a public blog and the photo source is unstated. The photo is Delta colors, airborne and fairly high. and headed toward the sun, as a R30L departure returning to R30L would be under the alleged circumstances.

Here's the link to the Airnation story:  http://airnation.net/hangar/threads/delta-737-returns-to-msp-when-engine-cowling-separates-photo.9977/
