Delta Air Lines Boeing 757 (Flight DELTA 2116) heading to Minneapolis is returning to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) after the crew reported a problem.
A Federal Aviation Administration source says Flight 2116 experienced a control problem after departure from LAX on Tuesday morning. The aircraft is in a holding pattern to burn off fuel, for a possible 'heavy' landing.
The Los Angeles Fire Department is stationing emergency equipment on one of LAXs' four runways.
