US Airways plane experiences flap problems

A US Airways plane set to arrive in Melbourne on Sunday evening was reportedly experiencing wing flap problems and emergency personnel were being alerted.

The plane reportedly touched down at 7:32 p.m.

The plane was a U.S. Airways Express Canadair, flight 5068 from Charlotte, N.C. 

Reports show it flew past the runway toward the west on its initial approach, pulled up and circled back over the ocean and flew west again for its approach.
