I sent the following message to Rolls-Royce's director of corporate affairs Peter Morgan. Seven hours later I have yet to receive an acknowledgement of my message, let alone an answer:
John Leahy (Airbus) has recently made numerous statements about Qantas' Trent engines, including this: "In the future the computer will have software that can identify a problem at the outset and it will shut down an engine before a turbine disc can go out of control and come apart.'
Can R-R please confirm, or deny, or explain?
