Delta Air Lines Boeing 777-200ER (N860DA) (above) departed Los Angeles International Airport as flight DL 89 from LAX bound to Shanghai, China on January 14, 2020.

The flight crew decided to return to LAX due to a compressor stall after takeoff and never got above 8,000 fleet. In order to lighten the landing weight the crew dropped jet fuel, dousing several students at the Park Avenue Elementary School in Cudahy, CA.

The plane landed safely.
