A Virgin Atlantic flight experiencing a mechanical issue was able to make a successful landing Sunday at Los Angeles International Airport.
The 787-900 aircraft, with an estimated 260 people on board, safely landed at the airport at 1:15 p.m., said LAX public information officer Frederick Badlissi.
It was not immediately announced what caused the mechanical issue or where the flight had originated from, Badlissi said.
Firefighters were told that the twin-engine aircraft had lost one engine and it was leaking oil. The 787 is designed to fly with one functioning engine.
It docked at Gate 25, Badlissi said.
