The flight from Denver was forced to make an emergency landing on Saturday, February 20, 2021 after one of the Boeing 777 engines broke down just minutes after takeoff.
According to the National Transportation Safety Board, metal fatigue damaged an engine blade, resulting in damage to another blade.
A similar accident occurred in the past at 777.
In 2018, United Airlines from San Francisco made an emergency landing in Honolulu after a fan blade broke during the flight.
“I want to understand if there is any connection between this event and events happening around the world,” said NTSB Chairman Robert Samwalt.
In the light of recent incidents FAA states that testing needs to be strengthened Of the Boeing 777 model.
However, the mission has not been lowered yet.
In other countries like Japan and the United Kingdom, airplanes of the same model are grounded with similar engines.
