An Air Canada jet airliner carrying nearly 120 passengers made an emergency landing in Anchorage Tuesday night after its oil pressure began dropping. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner took off from Vancouver, British Columbia, Tuesday afternoon en route to Narita, Japan. About 5 hours and 30 minutes after leaving Vancouver, the pilot on Flight 003 got an indicator that the oil pressure had started dropping; the plane ultimately landed at Anchorage International Airport (PANC), Alaska, around 10:40 p.m. There were no injuries reported. Air Canada sent a 777 to Anchorage Tuesday night to fly the passengers to Japan.
