GE awaits investigation update on engine
General Electric expects the US National Transportation Safety Body to issue an update on its investigation into one of its engines.
Parts of the GEnx engine on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner fell on to the runway and into grass at Charleston International Airport in South Carolina on 29 July, sparking a fire.
A GE spokesman said on Wednesday that the company was expecting the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to issue a statement on the investigation.
GE spokesman Rick Kennedy said the roughly 80 GEnx engines in use on aircraft around the world have remained in use as the NTSB carries out its investigation.
"The other engines are fine and are flying each day," Kennedy said.
An NTSB spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
"Is augmented reality the next big thing or a marketing gimmick? Is it fundamental to the future or a fashion faux pas?"
