GE inspecting 777 engine components

Following the NTSB reports on the British Airways 777 engine fire in Las Vegas last month that indicated a fault with an engine component, GE is investigating out-of-service versions of the engine component to further determine the cause of the engine failure. The failure in GE90 engine was not contained by the engine’s casing and several pieces of the high pressure compressor spool were found on the runway. The NTSB said that a spool in the high-pressure compressor section of the engine had failed. GE said that it is “aggressively inspecting out-of-service GE90 compressor spools of similar vintage to the one involved in the September 8 event,” adding that industry and government inspectors were “making significant progress in determining root cause.”
