184 Max talks with Boeing Experimental Test Pilot and former naval aviator John Tougas about his engine failure in a Beech Bonanza. In August 2020, John was flying IFR at 5000‘ above multiple cloud layers. At approximately 7 miles from Jacksonville, FL the crankshaft suddenly broke and the engine stopped. ATC gave him two vectors to the field, and John broke out of the clouds over the numbers.
