united forced to dump fuel over sydney

united plane had to dump fuel over sydney today, due to engine trouble, plane was headed for l,a. plane landed safely at sydney airport

glad they came down safe, it wasnt a big deal really a 747 can run on 2 engines instead of 4.

But if the United 747 is leaving Sydney it can’t make it to its destination (probably the west coast of the USA) on 2 engines.
