Generator diversion

Fly High English logo.

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


A 777 was en route and cruising when the crew noticed a problem with both the generator and backup generator on board. As a result, they had to dump fuel and prepared for a diversion to the nearest suitable airport. After 35 minutes of dumping fuel the plane made its final approach and landed without further difficulties. Maintenance was able to fix the problem after an hour on the ground and then the plane continued its journey, approximately 2 hours late.
