    Default Bits Of A Norwegian Boeing 787 Fall From The Sky In Rome

    Small fragments of a Norwegian long-haul plane's engine fell from the sky as the plane hit technical trouble and was forced to make an emergency landing in Rome, Italy.

    The news just keeps on getting worse for Norwegian Air. Italian media have reported that a Norwegian Boeing 787 bound for Los Angeles with 298 passengers on board had to return to Rome after it encountered technical trouble shortly after take-off.

    While the plane was airborne, small fragments from the fuselage rained down on the Isola Sacra neighbourhood. Falling debris caused damage to cars and houses in the area, while one person reported mild burns.

    I will only say, to bad that these pieces fell over and hit people and goods. But the plane did what it was deigned to do: spit the broken parts through the tailpipe. Believe, it is much better than having an uncontained engine failure and having not only pieces of blades but also a whole airplane falling on you.

    And the other thing I would say (or ask) is... Is there a problem with the Trent engines in the 787?

    What is the 'light pile'?

    Thank-you Gabriel! It's time for some answers, instead of secrecy, from Keith Leverkuhn. SIA has already made its position clear.

    Ha! It was intended to be tailpipe.

    Nope. Total disregard for basic typemanship.
