KE32 Circling West Of DFW

Thu Apr 30, 2015 6:14 pm

KL32 took off from DFW this afternoon and is presently circling west of Fort Worth at 7900'. It's a beautiful spring day here: what gives?

You mean KE32? Looks like it is burning off fuel and preparing to return back to DFW

I think they are dumping fuel, it will take hours to burn enough fuel.

Could be a technical problem, but it looks like they had right after take off because they didn´t go very far from airport.

KE32.

KL32 is KLM YYZ-AMS.

Don't have an answer though.

Probably troubleshooting something while burning fuel. Was holding at 7900 then climbed to 11900 and now descending through 9000 again. Testing the pressurization system perhaps?

Looks like they're landing back in DFW now according to the sometimes-inaccurate Flight Aware.

I was wondering why I saw them on the hard stand when I got to work around 1515!

The one time I was in DFW, sometime in 2013, this same flight was lined up behind us for takeoff. I heard later that it had to return b/c of engine failure...

Not saying they're related or anything
