United Airlines is landing 24 “Boeing 777” after it once failed the engine


The company “United Airlines” announced that it landed 24 of its “Boeing 777” planes, after one of them had its engine failed during takeoff two days ago.

The plane with 231 passengers and 10 crew members was forced to return to the airport in Denver. No one was injured.

Parts of the engine were found scattered in a nearby populated area. The plane took off towards Honolulu at the moment when its right engine failed.

In response to the incident, Japan asked all carriers using “Boeing 777” with the same engine to avoid its airspace, the BBC reported.

“Boeing” announced that it supports the decision of Japan and recommended the suspension of flights of all “777s” with such an engine while the investigation into the incident continues. The manufacturer announced that 69 aircraft of this type with this engine are currently used in the world.

According to the data of the American Federal Aviation Administration, “United” is the only carrier in the USA with such planes, and there are also some in Japan and South Korea.

The FAA will hold a meeting with “Boeing” and representatives of the company that made the engine.

For now, it has been determined that two blades inside the engine broke and that there was damage to the others as well. The main part of the fuselage suffered minor damage.
