Plane with mechanical problems lands safely
By the Associated Press
July 20, 2007


NORFOLK, Va. -- An American Airlines 767 landed safety at Norfolk International Airport early Friday after having hydraulic problems.

The crew realized after takeoff from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York that there was a problem with the hydraulics on the right side of the plane, Norfolk Airport Authority deputy executive director Wayne Shank said. The flight landed in Norfolk at 1:37 a.m.

The plane was headed to Buenos Aires.

American Airlines offered to book the passengers into hotel rooms. The flight was scheduled to leave Norfolk around 5 p.m. Friday, Shank said.

Nothing earth-shattering, but its not often to have equipment like this at ORF.

I was at the airport when it departed (around 17:45 local). Snapped some pics, editing now. I'll post when they're ready.

Here she is, one of the shots I took of her, N381AN departing ORF enroute to MIA after its technical diversion from JFK. Quite a sight at ORF, seeing a large AA tail tower above the terminal was quite unusual.

Thanks for the photo!

Got to see a video clip on WAVY-10 during the 1700 news segment.
Sorry I couldn't see it for myself.  Sad
