Engine failure forces Norwegian Boeing 787-8 to return to Rome Fiumicino


On 10 August, a Norwegian Boeing 787-8 (LN-LND) operated flight DY7115 between Rome Fiumicino, Italy and Los Angeles, United States. During take-off from runway 16R, however, the aircraft suffered a left engine (Rolls Royce Trent 1000) failure. The Dreamliner immediately returned to Fiumicino and safely landed 25 minutes after its initial departure. 

The aircraft carried 298 passengers. Fragments of the engine hit some 12 houses and 25 cars in Isola Sacra, near Fiumicino. One bystander was hit by falling debris, but he was just frightened and remained uninjured.
