A Western Global McDonnell Douglas MD-11 freighter, registration N799JN performing flight KD-922 from Brussels (Belgium) to Miami,FL (USA), was climbing out of Brussels' runway 01 when the crew requested to level off reporting they needed to react to several alerts and needed to return to Brussels. The aircraft stopped the climb at 5000 feet, the crew worked the checklists and advised they were having flaps trouble. The aircraft climbed to FL140 for about 20 minutes to dump fuel and returned to Brussels for a safe landing at a higher than normal speed (173 knots over ground) on runway 01 about 65 minutes after departure.

The aircraft is still on the ground about 7 hours after landing.
