It's a US 762, not a real surprise. They are always breaking.

Wow! I would not want to be on that flight! It looks like it was about 1/3 of the way and turned back...how depressing for the passengers! Why wouldn't they continute to AMS or even divert to YHZ or YSJ? I'm sure AC crew would have the parts needed to fix a 762.

Oh USAirways...  Yeah sure

Not YSJ, but possibly YYT, if that's what you meant. At PHL they would be better able to take care of their passengers and reroute them. No TATL ops ex E. Canada at this time (except maybe YHZ-LHR)

Most likely the book tells them not to keep going since they were still closer to home. AC may have had the parts, but time wasn't on their side either. Any problem with the repair and the crew probably would have gone illegal so PHL makes a lot more sense in that regard.

I do have access but I do not feel it wise to advertise why.
