United Airlines flight diverts following engine trouble.


A United Airlines aircraft travelling from Hong Kong to San Francisco yesterday (8 May) made an emergency landing after experiencing engine trouble.

The aircraft - a Boeing 747-400, carrying 327 passengers and 21 crew members - requested permission to land at Tokyo's Narita International Airport after a sudden loss of oil pressure in an engine on its left side was recorded.

The aircraft landed safety and all passengers were transferred to another flight, reported The Associated Press.
