10 minuites later i was able to get a hold of my aunt on her cell phone. she said that they landed at boston and they are not permitted to get off the airplane, but the fire fighters came aboard, took some kind of weird box out of the Lavs.

still no word on what is going on

Could be a small fire in the galley or something like that, they probably wouldn't let people off the plane because the flight might continue to IAD.. Nothing on the newswires about it so its obviously not a bomb scare or anything.

If I saw correctly, N774UA was the tail number and it was in the new colors.

I can confirm that all I saw were fire fighters around the aircraft ... when I left the airport at 2100 local time, the bird was still in North Cargo. It arrived around 1900 local time surrounded by the fire brigade.

This is the only information I could find doing a query for flight status:
MECH/DIVERTED FROM IAD TO BOS DUE TO MECH

I was able to talk to my aunt this morning. and she said that they where told that there is a Short circuit in one of the lighting units. that unit happened to be some where in the (she was not sure the lave or the galley - thats what you get from people who doesn't know about aviation) back of the airplane. smoke was heavy and caused an alarm to go off from a smoke detector, so my assumption is it was in the lav as they have smoke detectors. they were only an hour and half away from landing, and boston was closer so they landed over there. once they landed, they were surrounded by emergency vehicles, and they were not parked at a gate. they parked, fire fighters and mechanics came aboard the airplane, and they didn't know for one whole hour what is going on, despite them pulling that black box immediatly after they landed. during that hour, my aunt was telling me that they were just taking back and forth a lot of "metal coils" as she claimed, then after that they kept switching the lighting of the cabin on and off. before they left by 30 minuites the captain came on and announced that the problem was a short circuit in one of the lighting unit, and they know that the problem is. it is getting fixed, and they are getting ready to wrap up and leave in 30 minuites.

Hi all,

I snapped this picture from a US Airways Shuttle A319 leaving BOS for LGA that day.

You can actually see what I assume is the diverted UA B777 (center of the picture). There were lots of emergency vehicles around it with lights flashing (not visible in the picture).
