    Boeing 777 planes with a certain type of engine will have to undergo “immediate, stepped-up inspections,” the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said in an emergency airworthiness directive issued on Sunday. The FAA issued the emergency directive in the wake of an airline incident on Saturday. Debris from a United Airlines Boeing 777-200 passenger plane fell onto a suburb of the US city of Denver after its right engine experienced failure shortly after takeoff. A similar incident has also taken place in the Netherlands, injuring two people.

    Aircraft manufacturer Boeing has been plagued with issues surrounding a different model, the Boeing 737 MAX 8 model. It was involved in two major crashes that killed more than 340 people in total: Lion Air Flight 610 in Indonesia in October 2018 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in March 2019.

    The entire fleet was grounded in response.
