AAL1972 air returned (not diverted) back to ATL
due to MX
at about 1500L. It departed from RWY 26L and landed on Runway 27R (the usual approach runway for emergencies). The trucks were out of the house on the south side of the field. The aircraft cleared the runway under its own power and stopped on TWY M6
. It was met by AA
mx personnel, ATL
ops, and one fire truck. It was towed to the T-gates at about 1530. I had a fantastic view from the tower above C Concourse.
