Looks like avHerald missed this one:

The videographer incorrectly titled the event and misdiagnosed it. It was a maintenance issue. The body gear retracted.

Re: Kalitta shutdown/restart:

Shutdown seems a bit excessive. Why not just pull it back to idle? Who knows if another engine is going to die - you're going to want that thrust RIGHT NOW, not in 3 minutes.

Good question.

Maybe they wanted the FMC to be in 1 E/O mode, so that the FMC can compute the fuel and ETA predictions and the altitude profile correctly. One engine at idle would keep the ALL ENG mode, and the predictions and altitude profile would become incorrect.

I actually tried this in PSX. By telling the FMC manually an engine had failed (ENG OUT>) it seemed to compute the same data as when the engine was completely shut down? The only difference was with the engine shut down, it displayed the re-light envelope on the upper EICAS.
