Probably nothing, but worth keeping an eye on.
It's scheduled to land shortly.

This could be very serious Id hate for someone I know to be stuck on an airplane that has faulty landing gear hopefully thats all it is.

yeah, I'm 6' 1", 230...and I feel like I'm sitting in a sardine can, so I have to stand up and walk around a little bit every 1/2 hour or so...I always try and get an aisle seat....the WORST part of any trip is flying....I'm going first class next time, expensive as hell, but at 64 years old, screw it, I'll spend the extra money

Maybe the pilot had the runs?

Not much more in that article, just generic 'maintenance issues.' They canceled the flight.

Must be a seriously slow news day. I watched at least four flights either divert or return yesterday afternoon alone.

I can't say that I particularly mind a slow news day. Glad it doesn't seem to be anything serious.

They had another one yesterday. A flight from Reagan National to Fort Myers had a bird strike on takeoff and landed at Dulles.

You need to download Flightradar24 for your phone or computer and have an alert set for aircraft squawking 7700 and you'll be surprised how planes declare and emergency on a daily basis. It can range from medical problems with a passenger to an aircraft having issues

AirLive shows one weather divert, a runway excursion, and three emergencies including an engine fire in the last few hours.

FR24 does my head in enough sometimes with the squawk alerts, I'll spend all day at work with my phone going off and I'll be like 'reaaaaaally another 7700' .. either that or it's an alert for loss of comms or radio problems.

That being said considering the amount of flights that are flying on a daily basis it's good to know that or of the thousands of flights you only get a few with problems

I'll have to look at AirLive .. loving ADS-B when I want to have a nose about to see what military flights are showing, just to see what is flying round the UK

Triple Seven... These things happen, no biggie really, I have this happen to me once or twice a year. As long as you have one engine, you'll get down okay; you lose everything... Just hope you have a Sully clone up front.

Lol I saw a comment from someone who flew southwest airlines about the in cabin announcements.

Fly Southwest - where we beat our competition and not our passengers.

If it was an engine problem, I'm surprised the media didn't have them seconds away from death. A Canadian A330 landed minus a wheel last week, and one of the headlines was "Miracle Landing!"
