El Al flight 008 from JFK Airport in New York to Ben Gurion Airport was forced to turn around Wednesday morning soon after taking off, due to a technical glitch discovered in the plane, a company spokeswoman told The Jerusalem Post.

Technicians were in the process of fixing the problem in the 747-400 plane, which landed safely at JFK, containing 340 passengers.

Within the next few hours – after the technicians complete their work – the plane will once again take off for Israel, the El Al spokeswomen said.
