after take-off from Atlanta, the aircraft's left engine experienced an uncontained failure of the stage 1 High Pressure Turbine (HPT). The airplane returned safely and made a precautionary landing. After further examination of the engine, it was determined that the 'HPT' disk blade retention lug had separated because of a low cycle fatigue fracture. Both a service bulletin, PW2000 A72-592, and an Airworthiness Directive, TAD 97-11-51T, were issued to address this problem in this and other Pratt & Whitney engines.
