Norwegian Boeing 787-8 suffered an engine failure as it climbed out of Rome’s Fiumicino Airport in Italy.
The flight DY-7115 from Rome Fiumicino (Italy) to Los Angeles,CA (USA), was in the initial climb out, when its left engine (RR Trent 1000) failed and began emitting debris onto the ground below.
The crew stopped the climb at 3000 feet and returned to Rome and landed safely about 23 minutes after departure.
According to Mayor of Fiumicino, the falling debris slightly damaged 25 vehicles, 12 houses and hit a man on the ground.
Local residents reported glowing pieces of metal rained down in the hundreds in Fiumicino and the Isola Sacra neighborhood, in particular, the area around Via Mariotti, located 2 km from the end of the runway.
The airline reported the aircraft returned to Rome due to a technical problem.
Italian regulator ANSV have dispatched investigators on site.
