The fifth inflight shutdown - the third within in a two-week period - of a Rolls-Royce Trent 700 occurred to a Dragonair A330-300 en route from Malaysia to Hong Kong on 23 May. The aircraft was diverted to Subic Bay in the Philippines. "From first reports, we have no reason to suspect anything other than the same [gearbox bearing] problems experienced by Cathay Pacific a week earlier," says R-R.
