NEW YORK (AP) — Officials say an Aer Lingus Boeing 757 jet heading to Shannon, Ireland, had to return to Kennedy Airport after experiencing hydraulic failure.

Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo (pehn-TAN'-jeh-loh) says the plane had landing gear problems and no flaps when it safely landed at 7:30 p.m. Monday, about 15 minutes after takeoff.

Pentangelo says the jet's rear brakes overheated during the faster than normal landing, causing a small fire in the landing gear compartment.

He says the fire was extinguished and the passengers were transported by buses to the terminal.

A telephone operator at Aer Lingus would only say that Flight EI 110 experienced technical problems.

There were no reports of any injuries.
