On 26 August, a United Airlines Boeing 767-400 (registered N76064) operated flight UA23 between New York Newark, United States and Dublin, Ireland. Climbing through 16,000 feet, after departure from Newark, the pilots heard a loud bang but continued to Dublin for a safe landing.

A post-flight inspection revealed that the aircraft lost a panel of the underside of the aircraft.

United Airlines was forced to cancel the return flight to Newark. The aircraft is still grounded at Dublin Airport at moment of writing.
