BOSTON (CBS) — A Boeing 787 Dreamliner headed for Tokyo turned around over Canada and landed back in Boston.
It’s Japan Airlines Flight 7.
The FAA released the following statement:
Japan Airlines flight 7, a Boeing 787, from Boston to Tokyo, is returning to land at Boston due to an indication of a possible fuel pump issue. The aircraft is burning off fuel before landing back at Boston. The pilot did not declare an emergency.
