Second Boeing 787 diverted due to oil problems

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- The Federal Aviation Administration says a United Airlines Boeing 787 flying from London to Houston was diverted to Newark, N.J., because of a low engine oil indicator.

The FAA says United Airlines Flight 125 landed safely at 2:10 p.m. Thursday at Newark Liberty International Airport outside New York City.

Two days earlier, a United Boeing 787 en route to Tokyo from Denver was diverted to Seattle because of what the airline described as an oil filter issue.

United put its 787s back in service only one month ago.

In April, the government told airlines they could begin flying the new aircraft as soon as they revamped the problematic battery systems. The planes had been grounded for three months.

The FAA says it will look into the latest incident.
