DUBLIN (AP) -- Authorities say a United Airlines flight from London to Los Angeles has made an emergency landing in Shannon, Ireland, after the pilots reported smoke in the cockpit.
Shannon Airport in western Ireland says all 182 passengers and 10 crew members on Friday's flight are unhurt. All remained on the Boeing 777 as engineers inspected the aircraft to determine whether it could continue its journey.
Passengers sending text messages from the aircraft say the pilots reported smoke in the cockpit and dumped fuel in the Atlantic before turning back to Ireland. Shannon, the westernmost major airport in Europe, experiences about two emergency diversions of trans-Atlantic flights per month.
