Trouble call grounds CAL flight

(Trinidad Guardian) A Caribbean Airlines Boeing 737 aircraft had to return to Piarco International Airport 45 minutes after take-off, when an indicator light came on in the cockpit. Flight 524 left Piarco at 9 am yesterday, headed non-stop to John F Kennedy International Airport, New York, when 45 minutes into the flight, the light came on, prompting the airplane to turn back for maintenance evaluation.

Head of corporate communications for the airline Clint Williams said passengers transferred to another aircraft, and left Piarco at 3.20 pm, headed to their original destination. He said the initial aircraft was being checked by maintenance engineers in Piarco.
