Boeing 777: Dozens grounded after Denver engine failure



United Flight 328, bound for Honolulu, suffered a failure in its right-hand engine.


Debris from the jet was found scattered over a nearby residential area after it returned to Denver airport.


The agency has ordered extra inspections of Boeing 777 jets fitted with the Pratt & Whitney 4000 engine following the incident.


“We reviewed all available safety data following [Saturday’s] incident;” said FAA administrator Steve Dickson in a statement.


“Based on the initial information, we concluded that the inspection interval should be stepped

up for the hollow fan blades that are unique to this model of engine; used solely on Boeing 777 airplanes.”


The FAA met representatives from the engine firm and Boeing on Sunday evening.
