A US AIRWAYS flight was forced to return to Dublin Airport this afternoon after experiencing electrical problems in the air.

A spokesperson for Dublin Airport Authority confirmed that the flight, which had left Dublin this afternoon for Philadephia, landed safely. The DAA’s fire brigade attended the landing as a precaution but the incident has now been stood down.

A source told TheJournal.ie that a full emergency had been declared due to electrical problems while the aircraft was in the air, not long after it left the airport.
