Boeing urges airlines to suspend use of some 777s after engine failure

Boeing has recommended grounding more than 120 of its 777 jets worldwide following an engine failure on a United Airlines plane in Denver Saturday. The airline has announced an immediate halt of all flights by its fleet of 24 Boeing 777 airplanes while the Federal Aviation Administration said it would require stepped-up inspections of 777 aircraft with Pratt & Whitney PW4000 series engines.

The depositing of bits of plane isn't new. It was a bit falling off a previous plane that caused the Concorde crash. It's one reason runways are regularly swept for debris. It's also not new for a manufacturer to recommend grounding a type whilst investigations happen into a potentially serious issue. Saves them from blame if airlines continue to operate the type / model. I think Boeing is under a lot more scrutiny and journalists are regularly checking their press release pages, so picking these stories up.

Business Insider: "FAA... requiring "immediate or stepped up inspections" of all Boeing 777 with a Pratt & Whitney PW4000... engines are only used on Boeing 777 airplanes... 69 planes with the engine in service and 59 in storage..."
