…… before getting on to your next Boeing 777 flight? It appears that Rolls Royce’s Trent 800 series of engines can stop working because the fuel in the engines freezes. Yuck ! The NTSB thinks current precautions are not sufficient to prevent possible fatal crashes. Redesign of the fuel system will take at least a year and in the mean time adding anti-freeze additives to the fuel is being considered.
It is not the only problem that’s haunting this aircraft. Two un-commanded rollbacks on two separate passenger flights have also not been solved yet. I, for one, will be happy to stick to my Jodel’s and Cessna’s for now.
