FAA: Boeing 787 diverted over low oil indicator

NEWARK — The Federal Aviation Administration says a United Airlines Boeing 787 flying from London to Houston was diverted to Newark 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.
