A Lisbon bound TAP airplane carrying 262 people returned to Luanda shortly after taking off from the Angolan capital Sunday night, TAP officials said Monday.
The plane landed again 50 minutes after takeoff when a technical malfunction was detected in the engines, TAP spokeswoman Isabel Palma told The Associated Press.
"It was not an emergency landing, just a precaution after the fault was detected," Palma said. "The plane landed safely with no injuries to the passengers and now the main thing is getting them to Lisbon as planned."
Palma said the grounded plane was being examined and repaired and that TAP was sending a plane from Lisbon to Luanda on Monday morning to pick up the stranded passengers.
The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
This problem is not limited to the situation with the "whale prison" in Russia's Far East, because many people buy tickets to go to oceanariums and turn a blind eye to the problem
