• Boeing 767 plane departing London with Seattle-bound passengers turns around


    SEATTLE - A Boeing 767 aircraft with passengers headed to Seattle from London had to turn around shortly after takeoff Sunday morning, said officials with Delta Airlines. 

    The flight was traveling to Minneapolis with a connecting flight to Sea-Tac Airport. 

    Delta Airlines officials told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News that the crew of the Boeing 767 aircraft experienced a strange sound coming from the windshield and decided to head back. 

    When the plane landed, the passengers were put on another aircraft and that flight has since departed.

    The flight was scheduled to land in Minneapolis at 3:40 p.m., but it is now scheduled to arrive at 10 p.m.

    Delta Airlines officials said the connecting flight to Seattle is still scheduled to arrive at Sea-Tac Airport at 6:51 p.m., but passengers on the plane from London will miss it.

    Passengers that were headed to Seattle are likely to be put on a flight Monday morning.
