LOT flight #LO1097 experienced a technical issue.
The flight #LO1097 from Warsaw to Seoul was supposed to be a 11-hour flight but the aircraft had to return.
Shortly after departure from Warsaw, the Boeing 787-8 stopped its climb and started to circle for 40 minutes.
The crew of the aircraft (reg. SP-LRB) was unable to retract the nose landing gear.
The flight held 17,000ft altitude and started to dump fuel in order to reduce the weight for a safe landing.
