Narrative:
Both blades of the rotor of the second stage of turbine that had disappeared with their root gave off by the loss of their pins of retention to the disc. The loosening of these two blades originated stall or detonation in the motor that the pilot and occupants heard; the breakage of the blades of second, third and fourth stages of turbine produced the fall of N2 and the total losses of power observed by the pilot
