Re: TMD22 Emergency Shutoff

Another sure fire way is a CO2 fire extinguisher aimed generally in the direction of the air intake. Advantages are you don’t have to get too close ( in case of a runaway engine there is a chance it will throw a connecting rod) and the engine will be completely recoverable as only gas has entered the air intake/turbo etc.

I found the plastic Amel logo coffee cups work perfectly for blocking off the air intake.
I am certain Captain Henri designed them that way.
