Engine explosion: The airline is taking the Boeing 777 out of service for the time being


Published

The US aviation authority has announced the consequences of the engine failure of a United Airlines plane over Denver. The airline itself has already reacted.

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 aircraft will have to be taken out of service.” The inspection intervals should be increased.

On Saturday, as a result of the engine failure, large aircraft parts fell as rubble in residential areas not far from Denver. The United Airlines (UA) Boeing 777 landed safely at Denver International Airport with 241 people on board. 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 will immediately voluntarily remove 24 Pratt & Whitney 4000 Series Boeing 777 aircraft from the flight plan as a 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.
