Temporary flight stop for Boeing 777 aircraft after this weekend’s engine failure – aircraft with similar engines must be inspected | Foreign


The aircraft manufacturer Boeing recommends a temporary stop for all flights with the model Boeing 777 that have the same type of engine as the aircraft that was involved in an engine failure during the weekend.

According to Boeing, there are currently 69 such passenger planes in use and 59 planes in storage.

A Boeing 777 en route from Denver to Hawaii lost parts of its right engine and was forced to make an emergency landing shortly after takeoff on Saturday night.

Engine parts from the plane rained down over a residential area in the town of Broomfield in Colorado.

No people were injured, neither on the ground nor in the plane.

Extra inspections of Pratt & Whitney engines

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has ordered additional inspections of all Boeing 777 aircraft with Pratt & Whitney 4000 engines, which is the same engine model as in the accident plane.

Both the now affected airline United Airlines and Japan have already announced that they will stop all flights with this type of aircraft for the time being.

Japan’s Ministry of Transport says one of Japan Airlines’ Boeing 777 planes had an engine failure on December 4, forcing the plane to return to the airport.
