Off the wire at 12:21 cst:

Quoting Chicago Tribune:


A Boeing 777 is attempting to land at O'Hare International Airport with one engine not working, according to the Chicago Fire Department. Details to come.

I dunno, but my office is just past the end of Runway 32L, so if it crashes there, I'll let you know.

Looks like they updated the story to say that the plane landed safely....

Update from Tribune:

Quoting Chicago Tribune:

One of the engines became inoperable after the All Nippon Airways Boeing 777 "may have ingested some birds" as it flew over Mt. Prospect about 11:30 a.m., said Elizabeth Isham Cory, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

It also says it was a cargo plane ... I didn't think there were many B777 cargo aircraft running around yet these days?

ANA to Narita. Appears it may have been an early lunch, as it possibly ingested some birds after take off. Fuel dumped over Lake Michigan prior to landing.

It couldn't have been a "cargo 777" as the article says.  Smile Most likely a 767, if it was cargo.

I didn't see anything about it being a cargo plane.

Quoting Chicago Tribune:
Martin said he was told the aircraft was a passenger plane. How many were on board is unclear, he said, adding that the plane was a Boeing 777 300ER, a large jet capable of accommodating about 247 passengers plus a crew.

"Cargo plane" was mentioned in the lede of a few of the early versions of the Trib's stories. It appears that they've got it ironed out now.

Who cares? If you want real aviation news, you read the AvWeek daily stuff or FlightGlobal or something along those lines.

Whatever the effects, I'd say they are significantly less detrimental to the environment than the likely consequences of an "off-airport" landing in an aircraft of that size...

Aye - concur!

Especially the environmental effects of a fuel laden, over landing-weight 777 landing on rwy 10, not being able to stop and plowing into a traffic/construction heavy Tri-State Tollway at noon on a Monday before the 4th of July weekend.

Glad they returned to the field safely. Curious to know how this works from a business standpoint. If they need to replace the engine are they insured for the loss? Who makes the decision to replace or repair? Who does the work since their plane is in a remote location? Does the engine mfg have spares in stock? Very interesting of the airline industry.

None.. it would vaporize before coming in contact with the water. It's just done over land as a precaution in the odd case that the climatic conditions allow some to reach the ground.

Screw that, what about the cost of all that wasted fuel at $147/gallon?  wink  A bad time to be dumping fuel!

Err that should have read NOT done over land... but I'm guessing most of you managed to figure that out.

Free JetA falling over Lake Michigan! Time to get Mike Rowe out there on a boat with a haz-mat suit and start scooping up the rainbow colored water into a large holding tank!!! After a few hours of distillation and filtration, sell it back to ANA at cost (plus the retrieval costs).

I know it can't be done, but it sounds like a very Dirty Job to me....

Hey guys,
I was in ORD doing some spotting today and I snapped a pic of the 777 taxiing into gate after the emergency landing. It was a 777-300 for ANA. Tail number is JA736A

Not to mention a fuel laden 777 trying to make an emergency landing on Michigan Ave. in downtown Chicago on the busiest shopping day of the year when the President is in town.
