Aviation authorities announce inspection after engine failure


Letztes Update am

After the engine failure of a Boeing 777 not far from Denver in the state of Colorado, the US aviation authority FAA has announced consequences. Machines of this type, which are equipped with certain Pratt & Whitney engines, should be intensified and checked immediately, said FAA chief Steve Dickson on Sunday (local time) and announced a corresponding emergency policy.

“This will likely mean that some planes will have to be retired,” said Dickson. The inspection intervals should be increased.

Meanwhile, the Japanese Ministry of Transport ordered a flight ban for aircraft equipped with the affected engines in their own country as a precaution. This affects 13 aircraft from Japan Airlines (JAL) and 19 aircraft from All Nippon Aiwars (ANA), as the Ministry announced in Tokyo.

On Saturday, as a result of the engine failure, large parts of the aircraft fell as debris in residential areas not far from Denver. The United Airlines (UA) Boeing 777 landed safely at Denver International Airport. There were no reports of injuries – either on board or on the ground. The machine was on its way from Denver to the capital of Hawaii, Honolulu. According to the FAA, the right engine of the machine failed shortly after takeoff.

United Airlines announced that it is voluntarily removing 24 Pratt & Whitney 4,000-series Boeing 777 aircraft from its flight schedule as an immediate precautionary measure. It should be ensured that these aircraft meet the strict safety standards and can be put back into service. There are currently 52 of these aircraft in the fleet – 24 active and 28 in storage.
