LOS ANGELES— A Boeing 787 Dreamliner jet was “returned to base” on Sunday because of a problem with its brakes, a Boeing spokeswoman said, adding the landing was uneventful.

“It was leaving Houston to go to Denver and it went back to base,” Yvonne Leach told AFP of the United flight. The fleet of Dreamliners was grounded earlier this year when problems were discovered with its battery systems.
