TEL AVIV (Aug. 7)
An El Al Boeing jet which left this morning for Rome, returned to Lod Airport from midway after one of its engines developed signs of malfunctioning. The emergency equipment at Lod was alerted but the plane made a perfect landing. The passengers were transferred to another plane while the Boeing was taken to a hangar for inspection. This is the fourth case in the last month of El Al planes landing with technical troubles.
