Boeing confirmed to ATW Monday morning that an All Nippon Airways (ANA) 787 aircraft has “returned to service” following a landing gear problem Sunday, less than two weeks after the aircraft’s inaugural flight (ATW Daily News, Oct. 26).

Reuters reported that “pilots on the first of two aircraft delivered so far to ANA were forced to deploy the landing gear using a manual backup system Sunday after an indicator lamp suggested the wheels were not properly down. They landed at Okayama at the second attempt following the incident,” the airline told Reuters.

Boeing told ATW in an emailed statement: “We are aware of this matter and are on-site in Japan with ANA offering whatever assistance they require. Today we can confirm maintenance has been completed and the airplane has returned to service.”
