The use of Boeing 777 model aircraft is suspended due to engine failure in the USA. Dozens of aircraft will be kept in hangar in the United States and Japan for necessary maintenance
Boeing, one of the largest aircraft manufacturers in the world, requested airline companies to temporarily stop the use of the Pratt & Whitney PW4000-112 engine Boeing 777 aircraft due to engine failure in the USA. Aviation authorities in the United States and Japan are taking action on the matter.
Last Saturday, the right engine of the Boeing 777-200 model aircraft belonging to United Airlines, which took off from Denver International Airport to Honolulu, caught fire while cruising, giving passengers a moment of fear. Fortunately, there was no bad balance sheet.
Dozens of Boeing 777s are waiting in the hangar
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that the plane, which had 231 passengers and 10 crew members, returned safely to the airport. While there was no injury in the accident, parts of the plane fell into the garden of the houses located near the airport.
American airline company United Airlines suspended the flights of 24 Boeing 777 aircraft. In addition, the Japanese Ministry of Transport ordered All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines, which have 19 and 13 Boeing 777s in their fleet, respectively. The planes will be kept in the hangar for necessary maintenance.
