SAN DIEGO (AP) — A Boeing 787 Dreamliner headed to Tokyo was diverted back to San Diego because of a possible problem with the aircraft's deicing system.
NBC-7 in San Diego reports the Japan Airlines flight left Lindbergh Field shortly after 1:30 p.m. PDT Wednesday. But the plane turned around and landed back in San Diego by 3:10 p.m. PDT.
Airline officials told the television station the pilot received an error message for the deicing system. The pilot made the decision to go back to San Diego so repairs could be made.
The Dreamliner has suffered a few glitches, most notably overheating lithium-ion battery systems that caused the planes to be grounded worldwide for three months this year. Boeing redesigned the battery systems to the satisfaction of U.S. aviation regulators.
