MANILA, Philippines – A United Airlines flight bound for Guam returned to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila after experiencing mechanical problems while on air on Wednesday.

NAIA-Media Affairs Division reported that Flight UA 184 was earlier scheduled to depart from Manila to Guam via Honolulu, Hawaii at 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, but was delayed for 33 minutes.

Its pilot, however, was forced to maneuver back to NAIA after the plane’s right engine overheated.

The aircraft touched ground at NAIA Terminal 1 at 2:51 a.m. on Wednesday.

None of the 125 passengers was reported hurt.

The airline billeted some passengers in nearby hotels or asked them to rebook to other flights.
