SQ 777 IFSD near Japan

Singapore Airlines reports trouble, lands safely in Japan A Singapore Airlines jet shut down one of its two engines after suffering mechanical trouble Monday but landed safely in Japan, transportation officials said. There were no injuries reported.
The Boeing 777-200 plane, flying from Singapore to Nagoya, reported the trouble about 30 minutes before arriving, said Yasuki Shigeno, a Transport Ministry official at the Central Japan International Airport.
Officials initially said the aircraft suffered engine problems, but later said a computer glitch involving the right engine appeared to be the cause of the trouble, adding investigations were continuing.
The plane landed with only one engine operating, but none of the passengers and crew aboard was injured, according to Shigeno. He later corrected the total number of passengers and crew members to 223, from 210.
There was no damage to the plane, the official said.
"The cause of the incident is being investigated by engineers, and the aircraft is expected to return to service once investigations are complete and components changed," Singapore Airlines said in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
