A second incident involving a Boeing plane’s engine catching fire and dropping parts has been reported – this time in the Netherlands. A woman was injured by falling debris when the Boeing 747-400 cargo plane dropped engine parts after taking off from Maastricht Airport on Saturday. It comes after a United Airlines 777 bound for Hawaii was forced into an emergency landing on the same day as its right engine was seen engulfed in flames and debris plunged towards the ground. All 231 passengers and 10 crew onboard, as well as those on the ground, were unhurt. Boeing has recommended temporarily stopping flights of planes with a similar engine to one that suffered a catastrophic failure mid-flight over the weekend. Advertisement The plane in the Netherlands, which was heading from Maastricht to New York, was powered by Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines, a smaller version of those on the United Airlines plane involved in the incident in Denver.
