After the engine failure of a Boeing 777 not far from Denver in the state of Colorado, the US aviation authority FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has now announced consequences.

Machines of this type, which are equipped with certain Pratt & Whitney engines, should be intensified and checked immediately, said FAA chief Steve Dickson on Sunday (local time) and announced a corresponding emergency policy. “This will likely mean that some aircraft will have to be taken out of service.” © www.de24.news

 The  inspection intervals should be increased.
