"Passenger plane makes emergency landing at Shannon
07/07/2005 - 16:41:30

A US passenger plane with nearly 200 people on board made an emergency landing at Shannon Airport this afternoon.

The American Airlines flight from Heathrow to New York was over the Atlantic when the crew reported an electrical fault and smoke in the cockpit.

All 190 passengers and crew were evacuated from the jet, and a full inspection is now being carried out.

It is not clear how long the Boeing 777 will remain on the tarmac.
