Boeing’s 737 MAX has barely found its way back into the air in Europe, after almost two years of flight ban, when a new aircraft from the manufacturer finds itself grounded. On Sunday, the American company requested the immobilization of 128 Boeing 777s equipped with PW4000 engines and the United States Federal Aviation Regulatory Authority (FAA) demanded an additional examination of these devices.
The move comes after an engine exploded on Saturday, just after a flight from Denver, Colo., To Honolulu took off. On the same day, in the Netherlands, a B747 model cargo plane also faced a fire in one of its engines, the debris of which fell to the ground and injured two people. The American incident did not cause any injuries despite the fall of large debris in the suburbs of the city, but several companies chose to immobilize their devices.
