Investigation opened after pieces of a Norwegian Boeing 787 fell near Fiumicino airport
An investigation is being held by Italy’s flight safety agency (ENAC) into an incident over the weekend in which fragments of a Norwegian airlines Boeing 787 damaged cars and roofs in the vicinity of Rome’s Fiumicino airport when they fell off from the plane after its takeoff on Saturday.
A spokeswoman from Italy’s civil protection agency confirmed the incident to Euronews, adding that most of the pieces fell around the area of Isola Sacra in the city of Fiumicino not far from the airport.
A spokeswoman for Norwegian airlines told Euronews that a flight from Rome to Los Angeles had to go back to Fiumicino airport “due to indications of a technical failure of one of the engines”. She added that the aircraft landed safely.
