    A Swiss International Air Lines plane was on its way from Zurich to Los Angeles when it suddenly experienced a technical problem and was diverted to the small Canadian city of Iqaluit.

    On February 1, 2017, the Boeing 777 with 216 passengers and 17 crew members on board automatically shut down its left engine in mid-flight due to malfunction, as it is programmed to do. The plane made a soft and safe landing at the Iqaluit airport. However, that was not the end of this adventure: the passengers' arrival to LA was delayed for a while as they were waiting for another plane, so they had an unexpected stopover during their journey.
