787 makes emergency landing in New Orleans
A United Airlines Dreamliner in December 2012 landed in New Orleans unexpectedly due to a mechanical issue. The emergency landing occurred as the Federal Aviation Administration ordered urgent inspections of Dreamliners for possible defects in the airliners' fuel lines. One report assumed that one of the troubled plane's six electric generators had failed midflight, originally from Houston to Newark.
No one was injured as a result of the incident.
