Tilde's EDF-50 fan flys off in flight caught on digital film.

Don's GWS EDF-50 powered Tilde. There are two picture showing why one needs to CA the fan to the shaft. First picture shows the moment the fan came off the shaft causing shock to the EDF unit. The next picture shows the fan dropping to the ground. There was no damage to the plane and it landed safely.

Great pictures. Makes the accident investigation really simple, you don't even have to find the "black box".
