LONDON -- Thomson Airways says one of its Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes travelling from England to the U.S. had to turn back after experiencing a technical issue.

The incident is the second to involve one of Boeing Co.'s troubled planes on Friday. Earlier, Heathrow Airport temporarily shut down its runways due to a fire on an empty 787.

Thomson said that flight 126 travelling from Manchester Airport to Sanford, Florida had returned to Manchester as a precautionary measure.

It said all passengers had disembarked from the plane and engineers are inspecting the aircraft.
