Debris from New Boeing 787 engine sparks fire in SC

I think this equipment is going to become one of the great airplanes. I hope this is not a serous flaw.

OK, who left their gloves or oily rags in the engine after mounting? Bet you it is an Airbus mole working on the assembly line.

Naw it was one of the Union moles that got ground up while trying to put something into the engine.

I'm sure that there is solid evidence backing up that statement. Otherwise you wouldn't have said something like that, right?

It sucks when someone who clearly has no sense of humor decides to reply to a thread based entirely on... humor.

If it goes as that ATC thread did yesterday or day before, it will turn ugly and have all the Presidents, political parties and religion in here before it's over and FA will have to clean it up.LOL

You know, I left before I heard the details but CBS National News this morning was reporting that there was an engine shed of some kind, not just crap left in there. I hate to start getting serious on a lighthearted post but that's what they said.

I hope you can use it. It's so hot and dry out here they are telling erverybody not to mow, afraid of a spark starting a fire. That's how that big one started last week, from a state bushhog mowing highway right of way

Now the questions are why did a brand new engine fall apart?...Was something not torqued properly?....Is this a design flaw that decided to show it's ugly head in this one engine?..My money is on something not being torqued properly.

I'll go with some change in design(CID) being needed. It happens on new engine designs.

NTSB says it was a fan shaft failure.

What are federal officials trying to determine? Don't they know what an engine part looks like?
