WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTIC Radio) - A mechanical problem forced an American Airlines flight to return to Bradley International Airport Friday morning.

Flight 5427 from Bradley to Regan National Airport in Washington DC, landed safely and taxied to the gate, said the airline. There were 43 customers and three crew members aboard.

All customers were rebooked, the airline said.

There was no impact to airport operations, a spokeswoman for the Connecticut Airport Authority, said.
