All Nippon Airways (ANA) Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner was disabled on the runway due to dual engine failure upon landing.
AvHerald reported, “Flight NH985 from Tokyo Haneda to Osaka Itami with 109 passengers and 9 crew, landed on runway 32L, the crew deployed the thrust reversers when both engines (Trent 1000) rolled back and shut down. The aircraft rolled out without further incident, came to a stop about 2450 meters/8030 feet down the runway and was disabled.”
Despite going through checklists and troubleshooting over the phone with maintenance, the crew could not relight the engines. The aircraft was towed off the runway about 40 minutes after landing.
