DENVER, Co. --- Federal aviation regulators are ordering United Airlines to step up inspections of all Boeing 777s equipped with the type of engine that suffered a catastrophic failure over Denver Saturday.

United says it is temporarily removing those aircraft from service.

The announcements come a day after United Airlines Flight 328 had to make an emergency landing at the Denver International Airport after its right engine blew apart just after takeoff.

The National Transportation Safety Board said in a separate statement that two of the engine's fan blades were fractured although the agency did caution that it was too early to draw conclusions about how the incident happened.
