This is due to the incident with the Boeing 777, during the flight, of which there was an engine failure.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued an emergency airworthiness directive on Tuesday evening, requiring US operators to inspect all aircraft with Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines before further operation. This is stated in the statement of the regulator.

These measures are related to the incident with the Boeing 777 airliner, flying on February 21 from Denver (Colorado) to Honolulu (Hawaii). During the flight, an engine failure occurred. The plane returned safely to the departure airport, but a large part of the skin fell in the immediate vicinity of residential buildings.

“After reviewing the available data and considering other safety factors, the office decided that operators should inspect the large hollow engine blades through thermal, acoustic imaging. This technology allows you to detect damage on the internal surfaces of the blades or in places inaccessible to visual inspection,” the text says.
