Executive Summary:Approximately 15 minutes after the aircraft had taken off from Tel Aviv (TLV) Airport, on a flight to London, the left engine suffered a total loss of oil. The aircraft returned to Tel Aviv and the crew carried out an overweight landing, on one engine. The right engine thrust reverser was not serviceable and consequently the brakes became very hot during the landing rollout. The aircraft taxied to a nearby gate where the passengers disembarked normally and, whilst there, the fusible plugs in the wheels of the left landing gear activated and all four tyres on that gear deflated. Initial examination found that the left engine accessory gearbox casing had been punctured, releasing all of the engine oil. The engine was replaced and later returned to London Heathrow for examination by the operator.
