Second Boeing Plane Fails Mid-Flight, Forcing Emergency Landing

A second Boeing plane was forced to conduct an emergency landing over the weekend after a flight departing the Netherlands experienced significant engine failure.

The Boeing 747-400 cargo plane, operated by the charter airline service Longtail Aviation and traveling from Maastricht, Netherlands to New York, was forced to land shortly after taking off Saturday due to a significant engine failure, CNN reported. After airplane parts fell from the plane onto the town of Meerssen, Netherlands injuring two people, the plane’s crew conducted an emergency landing in Belgium.

“Our flight crew dealt with this situation professionally and in accordance with the correct aviation standards, resulting in a safe and uneventful landing,” said Martin Amick, accountable manager for Longtail Aviation, according to CNN. “We are now in the process of working closely with the Dutch, Belgian, Bermuda and UK authorities to understand the cause of this incident.”

Of the injured people, one was rushed to the hospital, according to Dutch safety inspector Veiligheidsregio, CNN reported. Cars and houses were damaged from falling debris as well.

The problem appears to be with Pratt & Whitney's PW4000 engine, which is used by multiple aircraft manufacturers, but US MSM always call out a US plane manufacturer rather than the engine, and seldom call out European manufacturer Airbus when one of their planes has an accident or engine failure.

Did this second plane have "hollow" turbine blades, as well ...?

Not sure what that's about. Perhaps "weight/mass reduction" ...?

Always hated working on P&W engines when I was jet mech.  Bunch of garbage and a garbage mentality towards customer service as well.

The only thing Boeing is at fault for here is going with the lowest bidder and for that, they'll pay as well.

It's about cooling...wiki does a good job of explaining it, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbine_blade

It appears that it is the PW4077-112 engine. It may only be used on the Boeing 777.
