Ryanair jet had engine scrape

A Ryanair jet was used on two flights after crew and maintenance inspectors did not notice an engine had scraped the ground landing in Dublin, a report has revealed.

The plane went on two subsequent services in and out of Poland.

The Boeing 737 was landing in November 2009 when the engine cover on the left wing, known as a nacelle, touched the ground.

The Department of Transport's Air Accident Investigation Unit probe recommended that Boeing should amend its pre-flight checklist to include inspecting the lower surfaces of engine nacelles.
