Boeing 787 makes emergency landing following engine problem

|By:, SA News Editor

A Japan Airlines (JAPSY) Boeing (BA) 787 flying to San Francisco from Tokyo has made an emergency landing at Honolulu Airport following a fall in the oil pressure in the right engine.

The glitch is the latest in a series of problems to affect the 787 and comes after Boeing said on Friday that it needs to inspect 42 yet-to-be-delivered aircraft for possible hairline cracks in the wings due to a manufacturing problem.

Meanwhile, search crews have still failed to find any signs of the Malaysia Airlines 777 that disappeared over the weekend whilst flying over Vietnamese airspace.
