On June 11, 2010, a Boeing 747-400F, registered JA01KZ, operated by Nippon Cargo Airlines Co., Ltd., took off from Narita International airport at 21:53 Japan Standard Time. Just after the take-off, the No. 1 engine (left), a General Electric CF6-80C2B1F turbofan, was shut down due to vibration. The airplane returned to the airport for an uneventful landing at about 23:08. All three persons on board were not injured.
