Not too many years ago I was in an Air France B-707 at Orly airport taking off for Rome when shortly before V1 the power was shut down and the airplane came to a stop on the runway. The pilot then made a 180 back to the runway and tried again, this time we went airborne. No announcement as to why, no fuss. just a normal operation. So French.
That had to have been more than not too many years ago...
Let's just put a line through the 'not many' part of your comment.
How astute you are to discern that it was more than "not too many years ago." How long ago do you think it happened? You may need a calculator.
It had to have been at least 32 years ago as Air France retired the 707 from their fleet in 1984.
When it came to crew, just remember..."Always Look for the Union Label."
