Dreamliner engine issue investigated

Boeing Co has announced The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is investigating an issue with an engine on a 787 Dreamliner following an incident at Charleston International Airport during a pre-flight test on Saturday, Reuters has reported. Local media reports said debris from the engine of the new Dreamliner fell on the runway and into the grass, sparking a fire at the airport. "While the investigation is in its early stages, we are unaware of any operational issue that would present concerns about the continued safe operation of in-service 787s powered by GE engines," said Boeing spokesman, Marc Birtel. General Electric, maker of the GEnx engine, is also involved in the investigation, Boeing said.
