What a great airplane to survive an engine failure as happened Feb. 20 (“Boeing: 777 with engine that blew apart should be grounded,” The Herald, Feb. 22). The 777-200 is a first-generation design. Back when aircraft were thought-out and proven by engineers. It looks like it was a pretty bad engine failure.
But flying safely on one engine is standard now and proven. After 40 years at the company, I would not hesitate flying a Boeing 777.
