    THE US Federal Aviation Administration says a United Airlines Boeing 787 flying from London to Houston was diverted to Newark, New Jersey, because of a low engine oil indicator.
    The FAA says United Airlines Flight 125 landed safely at 2.10pm Thursday (local time) at Newark Liberty International Airport outside New York City.
    In April, the government told airlines they could begin flying Boeing 787s as soon as they revamped their problematic battery systems. The planes had been grounded for three months.
    The FAA says it will look into the incident.

    And three days ago another UA 787 flying DTW-NRT was diverted to SEA because of an apparent oil filter problem. Does anyone know if they were the same tail number?

    United has said that the two incidents were "not related".

    They're on a count-down sequence. Stay off of 904 this week.
