A Delta Airlines Boeing 767 jet flying from New York City (JFK) to Istanbul (IST) diverted to Stephenville International Airport in Newfoundland on Friday due to an electrical issue.
Delta Flight 72, a Boeing 767-300 aircraft, turned around while passing the eastern tip of Canada over the Atlantic and landed safely at Stephenville at 10:29 PM local time.
There were no injuries reported.
The Delta pilots grounded the flight and switched planes.
Stephenville put up the passengers for the night while another 767 arrived and their trip to Istanbul resumed on Saturday.
