    Is it still under warranty?
    Major overhaul or not, turboprops don't usually disintegrate. That's more common on a turbofan, after FOD or bird strike.

    30 Km out, the pilot under instruction observed engine bits and oil coming out, the Aircraft was 261 I believe, which was due to return to Pilatus for a major overhaul.

    How far was the PC-9 from Baldonnel when the engine failed?

    Yesterday, around 3 o'clock, I saw a PC-9 heading towards Baldonnel. I was just off junction 12, M50.

    Well, they knew if they broke it they wouldn’t get another

    Not necessarily. If I was floating in a raft mid atlantic, I'll take any shade of heli at all, once they pick me up.
