This is specifically the case for aircraft using Pratt & Whitney PW4000-112 engines. The company notes that the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is currently investigating the incident.
Therefore, it is recommended to suspend flights with Boeing 777 aircraft using Pratt & Whitney engines while the investigation is ongoing. In total, the airlines own more than 120 such aircraft.
However, the US Federal Civil Aviation Administration has announced that all Boeing 777 aircraft will be inspected in full, including those without Pratt & Whitney engines.
Earlier it was reported that large parts of the aircraft cladding fell in the suburbs of Denver, Colorado, when the engine of a passenger plane broke down, but fortunately people were not injured either on the plane or on the ground.
The engine of the United Airlines Boeing 777-200 had serious problems shortly after taking off from Denver International Airport, but the liner managed to return successfully to the airport, the US Federal Aviation Administration said.
According to the passengers, shortly after take-off, the cockpit was shaken by a strong explosion, the plane began to tremble and lost height.
