United Airlines shut down 24 Boeing 777 aircraft after Saturday’s crash VIDEO – International


United Airlines has announced that it has shut down 24 Boeing 777 aircraft after one of its aircraft suffered an engine failure on Saturday, BBC News was quoted as saying by Mediafax.

The plane, which was carrying 231 passengers and 10 crew members, had to return to Denver airport. No injuries were reported.

The wreckage of the plane was found scattered in a nearby residential area. In response to the incident, Japan asked all airlines using the Boeing 777 with the same Pratt & Whitney 4000 engine to avoid its airspace.

Boeing said it supports Japan’s decision and recommended suspending operations on all 777s with the same engine while investigations into the incident continue.

The manufacturer says there are currently 69 Boeing 777s in service worldwide with this engine.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), United is the only American airline to fly such planes, the others being in Japan and South Korea.

The agency ordered additional inspections of Boeing 777 aircraft equipped with the Pratt & Whitney 4000 engine following the incident. The FAA is meeting with representatives of the company that produced the engines and Boeing.
