[Video] New engine for American Airlines Boeing 767 that diverted to Columbus, U.S.


On 16 September, an American Airlines Boeing 767 (N349AN) operated domestic flight AA726 between Philadelphia and Los Angeles, United States. While cruising at 36,000 feet, the crew received a left engine (CF6) oil filter bypass message that required them to idle the engine. The crew then decided to divert to Columbus for a safe landing.

On 19 September, the aircraft was still idle at Columbus airport. American Airlines mechanics are currently replacing engine number one. Aviation enthusiast Jennifer (Twitter: @Jen_Niffer) is onsite and tweeted a few pictures and a video of the aircraft and the engine replacement.
