BBC News - Heathrow emergency landing: Engine doors 'left unlatched'

viernes, 31 de mayo de 2013

The doors on both engines of the flight that made an
emergency landing at Heathrow last week had been left
unlatched, investigators have found.
Air accident experts said the coverings - the fan cowl doors
- separated and punctured the right engine's fuel pipe,
damaging the aircraft's systems.

Boeing says new 737 model will burn less fuel than expected

Boeing Co (BA.N) said on Thursday it
is confident its new 737 MAX passenger jet will burn 13
percent less fuel than current 737 models, a figure that
exceeds earlier estimates.
At a press briefing, Boeing said its forecast is based on
computer models and wind tunnel tests. The plane is due to
enter production in 2015 and be delivered to customers in
2017. The 737 MAX is the latest narrow-body plane by
Boeing and competes with the A320neo made by Airbus
(EAD.PA).
