Notes:

About ten seconds after take off from runway 19R a lot of smoke and debris (the thrust reverser cowling lost pieces of fibre glass and insulation) comes out from engine #1. The 777 keeps on climbing and after what I heard on the scanner they didn't get any indications at first in cockpit, it was the tower that noticed them that they were trailing smoke. After a couple of minutes the pilots discovers problems with the engine and decides to return to Arlanda after dumping ~65 tons of fuel over the baltic sea.

What happend? Did it ingest a bird?.... But still say this is a GREAT PIC

Steven, it was no bird strike, it was parts of insulation and fibre glass from the engine itself that came loose.
