And in other news.........
1 week after it's inaugural flight, comes it's very first loaded emergency landing for technical problems! (slaps forehead)
Just one week after the much-heralded inaugural flight of the Denver-to-Tokyo nonstop flight began, a Tokyo-bound 787 aircraft made an emergency
landing in Seattle less than four hours after taking off from Denver.
United Airlines flight 139 took off at 1:19 p.m. MDT from Denver International Airport headed for Narita International Airport but was diverted
because of an oil-filter problem at 4:25 p.m. just as the plane reached the Pacific Ocean north of Vancouver, British
You know, I hadn't even done a search to top post a thread on this myself. You're such an Aircraft symbol on ATS for your expertise, I figured the
most recent thread on the 787 would be yours anyway. lol...
This thing is cursed.. That's what it is. Airbus put the whammy on it or gave it the evil eye or something. They just can't catch a break ...or a
successful week, it seems. Ouch!
