A Japan Airlines Boeing 777 operating flight JL904 from Okinawa-Naha Airport (OKA/ROAH) to Tokyo-Haneda Airport (HND/RJTT), suffered an engine failure while climbing through FL160 40 nm north of Naha. The Boeing took off from Naha at 11:44 local time. Six minutes later, the No. 1 engine made a very loud bang followed by significant vibrations. The flight crew declared an emergency at 11:53, and the airplane safely returned to Naha landing at 12:23. No personal injuries were reported.
