A JAL Japan Airlines Boeing 777-300, registration JA740J performing flight JL-15 from Los Angeles,CA (USA) to Tokyo Haneda (Japan), was climbing out of Los Angeles' runway 25R when the right hand engine (GE90) emitted streaks of flames prompting the crew to declare emergency and stop the climb at 5000 feet. The crew requested to dump fuel and return to Los Angeles and advised they were able to climb 6000 feet, and were promptly cleared to 6000 feet for the fuel dump. The aircraft returned to Los Angeles for a safe landing on runway 25L and taxied to the apron.

The owner of a car, that had been parked in the beach car park near the beach side market past the end of runway 25R, reported his car was damaged by debris falling off the aircraft (see images below).
