Thanks for the heads up RE the stills Viking, I'll look into it and possibly resubmit. Strange though, I can see them fine and they're in as publicly shared album of Google Photos.

CATO, leave it up to you eh?!?!
My expectation is that I had a forward closure O ring failure or possibly a failure of seating between the forward closure and phenolic liner. The CTI 6G-XL casing split clean in two and both pieces were found. Shout out to the little d00d who found the relatively tiny forward bit and brought it back to me on the flight line!!! So yea, full burn through in the area of the CTI K300 forward closure. It burned a nice hole clean through the casing and once it burnt through it peeled back like a tin can.
I might take a couple more photos and post them, that is assuming I'm first able to sort out the photo posting issue Viking highlighted above!
