NTSB Looking Into Delta In-Flight Engine Failure

The National Transportation Safety Board says it will investigate a reported uncontained engine failure on a Delta flight last week. The NTSB said in a Tweet the event happened: “Sept. 5, Delta Airlines flight 1418, as it departed Atlanta bound for Orlando. The crew of the Boeing 757-200 with 127 passengers onboard, shut down the engine and safely returned to Atlanta There were no injuries.”

As the Tweet says, the crew shut down the engine and returned to base. The passengers were rebooked on other flights. This 757-200 has Pratt & Whitney engines and the faulty one was on the right side of the aircraft. Delta says it is cooperating with the NTSB on the investigation.
