Yeah... saw that. Without knowing the aircraft registration, it's difficult to determine what
species of engine. United Airlines has a mix of Pratt's and GE's, depending on the model
of 777, as I believe they have a mix that includes -200's, -200ER's and -300ER's.

Hmmm... something to investigate Very Happy .

**UPDATE** ... according to news reports the engine is/was a Pratt & Whitney 4000 Series.

Can you imagine, you are on a solo in a sailboat across the Pacific and suddenly a 777 engine decides to descend on you... Embarassed
