An American Airlines flight from Germany to Charlotte was diverted to London Tuesday due to a mechanical issue, according to American Airlines.
The airline says a mechanical issue with the water system caused Flight 705 from Frankfurt to land at London Heathrow airport.
The flight was initially scheduled to land in Charlotte Tuesday around 2:30 p.m. local time.
When the plane gets to Charlotte, American Airlines says it will be evaluated by Charlotte maintenance crews.
