Feds: Technical issues stop all planes from departing from Los Angeles-area

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Federal officials say technical issues stopped all planes from departing from the Los Angeles area for more than an hour.

In addition, the Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday its air traffic control facility had also temporarily stopped accepting additional flights into the airspace.

The agency says some flights were diverted as it gradually restores the system.

Officials at Burbank airport said some flights were again being allowed to take off.

No further details were immediately released.
