I remember nearly a month and a half ago that a United 777 from FRA to Washington D.C. experienced engine trouble and was forced to make an emergency landing in Iceland. A post was made on a.net debating how the plane would be repaired - Would it fly empty on one engine to the US or would United have to fly in a new engine??? Just wondering what actually happened. Thanks!

Hi Ord777!

A replacement engine was flown in (on a Kalitta 747 if I remember right)
to replace the broken one. The aircraft stayed here for a few days while the repair was made.

Here is a picture which was taken during the stay:
