According to CNN, Japan has grounded the 777-200. ANA and JAL have the same engines as UAL?

Up close showing damage. Whatever let go, it pierced the fuselage.

I thought so too, but the experts on A.net including multiple 777 engineers, and aircraft maintenance personnel are saying that based on the photo it did not pierce the fuselage but it pierced a non pressurized area of the wingbox and the wingbox is not considered part of the fuselage. It is an attachment to the fuselage.

Don't shoot me, I'm just the messenger..

That's another worry for Boeing.
Whether Fuselage or Wingbox it could have taken out vital systems in the wing area.
Engine Failure Containment is part of Certification, shouldn't have happened and guess FAA NTSB will look closely at that issue.

Those planes have been flying since the late 90s. I think you can say that engine does have a good safety record. Look at the much newer A380. Two uncontained engine failures, two engine types.
