According to initial findings from U.S. investigators, the British Airways plane that caught fire upon take-off from Las Vegas this week suffered an uncontained engine failure, with bits of the engine exploding onto the runway. All 157 passengers and 13 crew members escaped down emergency slides, with only a few minor injuries reported, after the pilot aborted the takeoff of the Boeing 777 jet and ordered the evacuation. The National Transportation Safety Board said a failure in the plane's GE90 engine was not contained by the engine's casing and that it had found several pieces of the high pressure compressor spool on the runway.
