..uncontained failure... which... damaged his ability to control the aircraft?
Yeah. Monday-morning 1/4-backing a pilot with problems isn't productive. Mine was just an idle observation...

Oh no, I wasn't taking you to task for wondering about a dead stick landing, just curious if anyone had heard the details of the 'engine failure'. That term could cover a multitude of sins! I think of puttering through the sky at 85 knots in my 1947 Aeronca Champ 7-AC when engine failure usually just means you are no longer to stay the usual 20 knots or so above stall. Hardly the same I guess with an aircraft that has the glide ratio of a brick!
