A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700, flight WN-1704 from Sacramento,CA to Burbank,CA (USA), was on final approach to Burbank's runway 08 when the crew initiated a go-around from about 2000 feet reporting a mechanical problem. The aircraft climbed to 6000 feet and entered a hold to work the checklists. About 15 minutes later the crew advised they had flaps problems and needed the longer runway at Los Angeles International. The aircraft landed safely on Los Angeles' runway 24R at a higher than normal speed (about 174 knots over ground) about 25 minutes after going around.
