UAL 935 Diverted To Shannon On 8. Feb 2013

Fri Feb 08, 2013 1:05 pm

According to Flightradar24, today's UAL 935 flight (LHR-LAX) declared an emergency while just out of Ireland and landed in SNN.

Does anyone know the reason of the diversion?

Edit: according to a Twitter post, there was smoke in the cockpit, which clearedby the time the aircraft landed.

Update - it was due to depart to LAX today as flight 1749 at 11:00 local but was subsequently cancelled. Another UA 777 will be ferried over from LHR tomorrow morning (as flight UA6860 arriving SNN 09:17) and will depart to LAX as flight UA1760 at 11:00. As for the grounded 777, I don't know if its still undergoing repairs at SNN or if it's been ferried off somehere else.

I also don't know if flight UA1760 will preclear USCBP at SNN but would be interested to find out...
