Live on flightradar24.com! The Swiss Boeing 777 has received a new GE90 engine and is now flying back to Zurich airport as LX5177, HB-JND is expected to land at 08:20 am after a 5h50mins flight.
Last week the SWISS Boeing 777 made an unexpected stop at Iqaluit, Canada after an engine failure. To bring a new engine (GE90) to Iqaluit, an Antonov was chartered.
A tent was used to cope with the freezing temperatures (-30 degrees!!):
Finally an engine run was necessary to test the newly placed GE90 engine: tweet video copyright @frankreardon1
Fantastic work and great performance by the entire Swiss team!
