A KLM Boeing 747-400, registration PH-BFT performing flight KL-856 from Seoul (South Korea) to Amsterdam (Netherlands) with 270 people on board, was in the initial climb out of Seoul’s runway 15R when one of the engines failed emitting sparks.

The crew stopped the climb at 3000 feet, dumped fuel and returned to Seoul for a safe landing on runway 15R about 70 minutes after departure.
