ANA 787 JA837A Drops Engine Panel

An Air Nippon Airways (ANA) Boeing 787-9 dropped an engine panel yesterday while departing from Tokyo’s Narita Airport.


The Boeing 787-9 with registration JA837A was operating flight NH919 from Tokyo Narita, Japan to Shanghai Pudong, China when the incident occurred. The Boeing 787-9 was on the initial climb out of Narita’s runway 16R, when a small panel detached from the right-hand engine (Trent 1000). The crew continued the flight to Shanghai unaware anything had detached from the engine, NHH919 landed without issue 2 hours 30 minutes later.


The aircraft operated the return sector from Shanghai to Tokyo as NH920 without issue. After arrival back in Tokyo, the crew performed a post-flight inspection and found a small plastics panel was missing from the righthand engine.



A plastics panel measuring 30cm x 16cm was found near a police station on the flight path of NH919 and its believed to be the missing part from JA837A’s engine.
