I got 99 problems

and a fan midshaft splintering is one. It is looking like the GEnx mid shaft fracture problem is a serious one. Something is causing these parts to come apart, and it likely isn't wear or corrosion. This problem will probably affect (delay) deliveries for both 747 and 787 for the foreseeable future. The National Transportation Safety Board has recommended all in service engines to be inspected for cracks in the meanwhile, and I'm sure GE engineers are scrambling to come up with a solution.

In other news, line 1462 (RC579) N852GT for Atlus was found airworthy, having a B1 flight yesterday.
