A Delta Airlines Boeing 757-200, registration N662DN performing flight DL-8943 from Phoenix,AZ to San Antonio,TX (USA) with the basketball team of the Utah Jazz on board, was climbing out of Phoenix when the crew stopped the climb at 11,000 feet reporting a flaps indication problem, the flaps didn't come up all the way. After working the checklists the crew decided to return to runway 25R advising they had an aircraft configuration problem, they did not declare emergency. The aircraft returned to Phoenix for a safe landing on runway 07L (runway configuration was switched in the meantime) at a higher than normal speed (175 knots over ground).

A replacement Boeing 757-300 registration N586NW reached San Antonio with a delay of 4 hours.
