A PW4000 engine made by Raytheon Technologies Corp.'s Pratt & Whitney division powering a Boeing 777-200 bound for Honolulu failed on takeoff Saturday, scattering debris over a residential area near Denver, according to The Japan Times. The plane was able to return to Denver airport and land safely. Japan's transport ministry on Sunday ordered ANA Holdings Inc. and Japan Airlines Co. to ground Boeing 777 planes they operate following an engine failure that rained debris over a Denver suburb but injured no one. ; The airlines had already taken the planes out of service 13 operated by JAL and 19 by ANA before the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism issued the order. The grounding of the 32 planes caused a cancellation of one JAL flight from Okinawa Prefecture's Naha to Tokyo's Haneda on Sunday. On Dec. 4, an engine on a JAL plane operating a Naha to Haneda service experienced trouble, forcing the aircraft to make an emergency landing. JAL and ANA said they are substituting other aircraft and there will be no flight cancellations from Monday onward. (news.financializer.com).
