    The flight turned back to Dulles about 8:25 p.m. A map from the flight-tracking site FlightAware.com shows the plane looping back toward the airport.

    The plane landed without incident on was met by Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Fire and Rescue, who cleared the plane to taxi to the gate.

    The passengers were transferred to another flight to Las Vegas.
