Denver engine failure: Aviation Administration orders investigation


NAfter the engine failure of a Boeing 777 not far from Denver in the state of Colorado, the American aviation authority FAA has announced consequences. Machines of this type, which are equipped with certain Pratt & Whitney engines, should be intensified and checked immediately, said FAA boss Steve Dickson on Sunday and announced a corresponding emergency policy. “This will likely mean that some aircraft will have to be taken out of service.”  The  inspection intervals should be increased.

Meanwhile, the Japanese Ministry of Transport ordered a flight ban for aircraft equipped with the affected engines in their own country as a precaution. This affects 13 aircraft from Japan Airlines (JAL) and 19 aircraft from All Nippon Aiwars (ANA), as the Ministry announced in Tokyo.
