A TWA plane with over 300 passengers aboard, en route from Tel Aviv to New York, returned safely to Ben Gurion Airport shortly after take-off Sunday, when an engine developed trouble. The aircraft circled over the Mediterranean for about an hour while the pilot dumped the full load of fuel in preparation for an emergency landing. The engine, which had begun to overheat, was replaced and the plane departed for New York Sunday night.
