On Feb 16, 2013, a Scandinavian Airlines System Boeing 737-883 was en route from Las Palmas to Bergen – Norway when the flight developed problems with the flaps.

Pilots diverted to Stavanger airport where SAS has mechanics. Ten minutes before landing, passengers were told to keep their heads down.
