AN AIR Canada flight depart­ing Madrid re­turned to MadridBara­jas Adolfo Suarez safely on Mon af­ter ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a num­ber of prob­lems.

The Boe­ing 767, car­ry­ing 128 pas­sen­gers and eight crew, de­parted early in the af­ter­noon, but had to re­quest an emer­gency re­turn af­ter en­gine is­sues and a burst tire on take-off.

The plane was forced to cir­cle for hours to burn fuel in or­der to be light enough to land, with a fighter jet dis­patched to eval­u­ate dam­age done to the land­ing gear.
