Korean Air flight returns to Dallas after takeoff

DALLAS (AP) - Airport officials say a Korean Air flight leaving Dallas turned around because of apparent engine problems after takeoff and was greeted on the tarmac by fire trucks.

Korean Air Flight 32 returned Sunday to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. According to the Korean Air website, the Seoul-bound flight was rescheduled for Monday because of "aircraft operational condition."

Airport spokesman David Magaña said in a statement that the plane landed safely and that fire crews found no hazards. He said the plane circled for about 40 minutes to dump fuel and no one was injured.

Passenger Mark Norris says a woman yelled "Fire!" after takeoff and another reported seeing a flash. He says the flight crew announced shortly after they needed to dump fuel and return.

Norris says passengers stayed calm.
