Investigators are trying to understand the cause of damage to a spinning shaft in a GE (GE) engine that was attached to a Boeing (BA) 787 aircraft and expelled hot metal shards during a test run last month. "If it was a manufacturing error, it can be remedied, but if it's a design problem, that's a little more integral to the engine," says consultant William Storey.

    My first thought is what was the shaft made of? If it was Stainless Steel then they have a big problem.
