Boeing recommends suspending operations of 777 aircraft after engine explosion

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 22, (Xinhua/GNA) -Boeing Company said on Sunday that it
supported the decision to suspend operations of 777 aircraft powered by Pratt &
Whitney 4000-112 engines after a Boeing 777-200 airplane suffered an engine issue on
Saturday.
A Boeing 777-200 flight from the United Airlines made an emergency landing at
Denver International Airport on Saturday after the right engine suffered a failure and
exploded mid-flight. All the 241 people on board, including 231 passengers and 10
crew members, were deplaned unharmed. Debris falling from the burning engine was
scattered across three nearby neighborhoods, causing no injuries.
Earlier on Sunday, United Airlines said it was removing 24 of its Boeing 777s from
service after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said the agency will issue an
emergency directive and require stepped-up inspections of Boeing 777 flights with the
same type of engine involved in the Denver explosion accident.
Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism has also ordered
domestic carriers to halt flights of Boeing 777s following the incident.
« Boeing supports the decision yesterday by the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau, and the
FAA’s action today to suspend operations of 777 aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney
4000-112 engines, » the company said in a statement.
« While the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigation is ongoing, we
recommended suspending operations of the 69 in-service and 59 in-storage 777s
powered by Pratt & Whitney 4000-112 engines until the FAA identifies the appropriate
inspection protocol, » Boeing noted.
