From Haaretz newspaper:
"An El Al airliner bound for London was forced to land in Ben-Gurion International Airport on Friday shortly after taking off, after discovering a technical fault in its flaps.

The malfunction was discovered 40 minutes into its flight, at which point the plant was instructed to burn fuel and return to Tel Aviv. It then circled the port for another 40 minutes, before safely land ing. "

LY 315 departed to London at 2.37 PM with 349 passengers.

I would think the crew would know of a flap problem (failure of one or more to retract?) much earlier than 40 minutes into flight when it should have been at cruise altitude and airspeed.

It's quite common, especially with those older Boeing bangers!
Happened to me quite recently on a BA 763, ironically also returning from TLV

In an Israeli aviation forum it was said the flaps were stuck at 10. Of course this is something the pilots found out after 3 or 4 min of flight and not 40.
In the forum there is a picture of its route which shows they didn’t fly too far.
Here is a link to a specific message in the thread where you can see the aircraft after landing (I hope you can see it without any problem because it is an Hebrew website). You can click on the picture to enlarge it.
The inboard flap looks at 25 but the outboard flap is not visible.
My guess is a broken torque tube or a total failure of one of two Flaps Power Packages.



Long live the B747

I like the fact the Plant was instructed to return. I work with plants and the only ones that fly is when I get bored chucking rubbish.

You mean LY didn't scramble F-16's?   

In all seriousness, seems like a pretty normal problem to have. Sad to see there were no stories from PAX about how they knew something was off before the plane took off.

Just noticed ELA is operating LY316 today (and obviously LY315) so seems like it was a very quick repair.

Any have any more details on the problem and what was done/needed to be done to fix it?
