JAL Boeing Plane Makes Emergency Landing in Hawaii

TOKYO, Japan – Amid the growing fear over the fate of the missing Boeing 777-200, MH-370, another Boeing plane faced trouble Sunday, March 9, and made an emergency landing in Honolulu, Hawaii.

A Japan Airlines (JAL) Dreamliner flight JL002 from Tokyo to San Francisco was reported to have made an emergency landing due to faulty hydraulic system, according to Japanese national broadcaster NHK.

Reports also said a warning message about low pressure of lubricant oil on the plane’s right engine started to appear while on cruise, prompting the pilot to divert its course to Hawaii.

The passenger aircraft is carrying 171 passengers and crew but there were no report of fire or injuries, said the NHK.

After the incident, JAL has issued a short statement on its website describing the cause for emergency landing as a “maintenance issue.”

“This flight terminated its operation at Honolulu International Airport,” the statement added. (Clcik here to read more)
