Boeing recommends airlines ground 777s with type of engine that blew apart

  Boeing recommends airlines ground 777s with type of engine that blew apart Boeing said on Sunday that it supports a decision by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Japan's aviation authority to ground some of the company's 777-series aircraft after an engine on one of those jets exploded while flying over Colorado.The company said in a statement on its website that it "is actively monitoring recent events related to United Airlines Flight 328," which landed in Denver after making an emergency stop due to the explosion. No injuries were reported.

Il s'agissait d'un problème de pression sur l'huile du moteur ou d'un problème sur un indicateur de volume, selon cette porte-parole. © Jawal A. WILSON / AFP It was a problem with the pressure on the engine oil or a problem with a volume indicator , according to this spokesperson.

Due to a "possible mechanical problem", the pilots of an American Airlines Boeing 737 MAX decided to shut down one of the aircraft's engines in an emergency during a flight.

The pilots of an Boeing 737 MAX from American Airlines decided on Friday to stop urgently during a flight Miami-New York one of the aircraft's engines because of a " possible mechanical problem , before landing it safely.

Flight 2555 on Boeing's flagship aircraft, grounded for nearly two years after two fatal crashes, arrived "safely and without incident" at Newark Airport and taxied unaided to at the planned gate, a company spokesperson said.

Engine oil pressure problem

It was an engine oil pressure problem or a problem with a volume indicator, according to the spokesperson.

The MCAS pilot assistance software, implicated in the Lion Air crashes in 2018 and Ethiopian Airlines in 2019, was not involved, she said.

The aircraft, coming from Miami, landed "after the pilots reported having turned off one of the engines in flight", indicated for its part the US agency overseeing aviation, the FAA, which plans to 'investigate the incident.

American Airlines was the first company to reintegrate the 737 MAX into its flight program at the end of December 2020, a few weeks after the green light from the American authorities.

"Inevitable"

These had required several modifications to the aircraft, including the MCAS software, as well as new pilot training.

FAA Director Steve Dickson warned at the time that it was "inevitable " that mechanical problems or suspected problems arise at one point and a 737 MAX has to return to the airport during flight, as is regularly the case with all aircraft models.

Boeing, which has set up an operations center that monitors all 737 MAX flights in real time, said on Friday it was "aware" of of the incident without giving further comment.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw Decided Pandemic Was Perfect Time to Buy and Not Disclose Stocks .
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) did not buy or sell any stocks in his first 13 months as a congressman. That changed in March 2020, when he made half a dozen buys as the largest economic relief package in history was written and debated. Five of those purchases came in the three days between March 25 and 27, as the Senate and House voted on the CARES Act and former President Trump signed it into law. Crenshaw, who supported the bill, did not initially disclose the transactions, in violation of the STOCK Act, a law that requires members of Congress to tell the public when they engage in securities trades. Months later he amended his records to reflect the purchases.
