https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/stu ... h?lang=engI remember vividly an experience I had as a passenger in a small two-propeller airplane. One of its engines suddenly burst open and caught on fire. The propeller of the flaming engine was starkly stilled. As we plummeted in a steep spiral dive toward the earth, I expected to die. Some of the passengers screamed in hysterical panic. Miraculously, the precipitous dive extinguished the flames. Then, by starting up the other engine, the pilot was able to stabilize the plane and bring us down safely.

Speaking in Spanish, Church President Russell M. Nelson told of the time several years ago when he and others aboard a small plane survived the explosion of one of the plane’s engines, the plane’s ensuing fire and sharp nosedive toward the likely death of all aboard, and then the pilot’s miraculous emergency landing in a field after the speed of the dive extinguished the fire.
And he repeats the story this Easter
https://www.deseret.com/faith/2021/3/28 ... the-saviorWhile President Russell M. Nelson was traveling to an assignment several years ago, the right engine of the plane he was on suddenly exploded. Flaming fuel spewed all over the right side, and the plane spiraled toward the earth.
“I expected to die,” said President Nelson, narrating the experience in a video message published Palm Sunday, March 28.
Miraculously, the dive extinguished the fire. The pilot restored power to the other engine and made a safe landing. And President Nelson made it to his assignment on time.
You will notice the latest retelling is the most detailed and dramatic.
No dates or locations have ever been mentioned that I can find.
Has this story ever been corroborated by the other people on the plane?
Do both engines on a twin propellor airplane go out when one fails?
