On December 5, 2017 AeroUnion (Mexico) was preparing to operate cargo flight 6R 301 from Los Angeles (LAX) to Guadalajara, Mexico (GDL) with the pictured Boeing 767-241 ER XA-LRC (msn 23802).

The Boeing 767 departed from LAX but the right (number 2) engine started trailing smoke (above) after a possible bird strike. The flight crew declared an emergency, circled around and made an emergency and safe landing on runway 25L.
