I can't exactly recall, but I think it was to do with reconditioned
turbine blades in these aeroplanes' engines.  I read all about in
Australian Aviation (a magazine) but unfortunately I do not have the mag
here so I can't quote exactly.  Any rate, the problem was rectified using
new parts from the manufacturer.
