Engine failure - flight landed safely
I've flown all over the place for business and pleasure, and have been involved in a few flight incidents.

* Aborted landings. One, at Chicago O'Hare because the plane landing ahead of us hadn't cleared the runway yet, and another at Boston Logan because the British Captain wasn't happy with the way we were lined up. In both cases we did a go-around and landed safely.
* Aborted takeoff. At Rochester NY airport when the pilot got an alarm warning as we accelerated down the runway. He stopped the plane near the end of the runway, rebooted the flight computer, taxied back to the end of the runway and we took off without incident.
* Diverted to another airport. On final approach to Washington DC Reagan National in Winter, the plane landing ahead of us slid off the icy runway. We aborted the landing. The airport (which only has one runway) closed so we had to divert. Due to a large winter storm, our diversion airports at Philadelphia and Baltimore were closed, and we ended up landing in freezing rain at Norfolk VA.
