Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) said that they had taken notice of the engine failure accident of a Boeing aircraft powered by WP4000 engine in the US on Saturday.
 

CAAC said China has no in-service civil aircraft or cargo aircraft with same model of aircraft and engine and will continue to monitor developments in the US.

Media had earlier reported that the right-side engine of a Boeing-777 aircraft of United Airline flight 328 from Denver to Honolulu failed, and caught fire during its return to Denver International Airport, and the parts of the engine fell off to the ground. United Airlines announced on Sunday that 24 boeing-777-200 aircrafts powered by the same engines were suspended operation after the accident.
 

Boeing released a statement on Sunday that the company recommends airlines suspend the operation of 69 in-service and 59 in-storage Boeing-777s powered by Pratt & Whitney 4000 engines.
 

On December 4, 2020, a Boeing-777 aircraft used by Japan Airlines (JAL) that was the same age as the 26-year-old United Airlines aircraft involved in the latest accident took off from Naha Airport of Okinawa and had to return to airport due to engine malfunction. The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan required JAL and All Nippon Airway (ANA) to suspend the operation of the aircraft of the same model following the accident in US.
 

波音777引擎爆炸,多国停飞

美国波音737 MAX刚复飞不久,波音777机型又爆出问题。据《华尔街日报》22日报道,当地时间20日,美联航一架波音777-200型客机起飞后不久右侧引擎发生故障,迫使飞机紧急降落在科罗拉多州丹佛国际机场,所幸没有人员伤亡。飞机降落前,引擎在空中爆炸起火。该客机安装的正是普惠PW4000发动机。目前,美国、日本、韩国、英国以及欧盟地区的航空公司已相继宣布停飞波音777型号的飞机。
 

22日,中国民航局表示,目前中国民航机队没有相同型号的波音777-200客机,也没有配装PW4077型发动机的运输类飞机。
 

据航空数据提供商Cirium的数据,全球有超过220架现役波音和空客飞机使用的是普惠PW4000引擎。此次事故发生后,波音公司于21日紧急发布声明,建议在全球范围内停飞所有装配普惠PW4000发动机的波音777客机,共计128架,包括69架现役飞机与59架储备飞机,直到美国联邦航空管理局(FAA)要求的适当检查完成。
