The Netherlands. Parts of the plane’s engine fell on the city. The wounded woman


Fragments of a Boeing 747-400 cargo engine fell on the Dutch city of Meerssen on Sunday. The incident happened shortly after the machine took off from Maastricht. Falling elements damaged houses and cars and injured the woman. The flight to New York was aborted and the plane landed safely at the airport in Belgium, Liege.

Falling parts damaged houses and cars and injured the woman. “The photos show that these were parts of the engine blade, but this is subject to further investigation,” said Maastricht airport spokeswoman Hella Hendriks. She added that “several dozen pieces” measuring 5 to 25 centimeters were found in a residential area “on roofs, in gardens and in the streets”.

According to the testimonies of witnesses, flames were visible in one of the aircraft’s engines. The machine landed safely at the airport in Liege, Belgium, about 30 kilometers south of Maastricht.

– Our investigation is still at an early stage. It is too early to draw conclusions, said a spokeswoman for the Dutch Security Commission.

The Reuters agency pointed out that the plane used Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines, a smaller version of the engine installed in the United Airlines Boeing 777, which caught fire during a flight from Denver to Honolulu, Hawaii. Fragments of its structure fell to the ground near Broomfield, near Denver.

The pilots of the plane with 241 people on board managed to return to the airport and land there. No one was killed or injured. One of the passengers of the plane was filming a burning engine from the window where he was sitting.

In a statement released on Sunday, Boeing recommended “the suspension of 69 operating and 59 stored 777 aircraft with Pratt & Whitney 4000-112 engines until an appropriate inspection protocol has been developed by the FAA.
