American Airlines flight makes emergency landing after hydraulics failure

An American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing after undergoing complete hydraulic failure Monday morning.

American Airlines flight 1632 took off from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) at 7:16 a.m. local time, headed for Boston.

Less than an hour later, it made a U-turn and soared back toward LAX, having only made it as far as the Mojave Desert.

Mid-flight, the plane underwent complete hydraulic failure, according to, a live flight tracking website.

The pilots had to burn fuel to ensure the craft was light enough to land, according to Scanner Pacific, a Twitter account that monitors the LA police and fire scanners.

The plane arrived back to LAX at around 8:30 a.m. and landed safely, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department — with the gear and flaps deployed.

All emergency personnel who were dispatched to the scene were released, the LAFD said.

The Mirror reached out to American Airlines for more information on the flight but has not heard back yet.

Monday’s incident is the latest airline traffic debacle to occur in recent weeks.

On June 3, a Trans-Atlantic Delta flight was forced to land on a remote island off the coast of Canada when an unruly passenger broke free of his restraints.

The flight had left from Paris’ Charles De Gaulle Airport at 10:30 a.m. local time and was bound for Detroit.

Along the way, the passenger had reportedly been acting violently and “wouldn’t calm down,” passenger Dena Haddad told WXYZ Detroit.

Several heroic passengers pinned the man down.

After the flight landed in Stephenville, Newfoundland and Labrador, the Royal Canadian Mounted police took the man into custody.

And on Saturday, another Delta flight was forced to make an emergency landing due to technical difficulties.

The plane had been traveling from JFK in New York City to Los Angeles but landed in Utah after a backup system’s temperature instrument started experiencing issues.

When it did, an inflatable slide blew up and struck a flight attendant.

They were taken to a local hospital for treatment, and it is yet unclear what their condition is.
