A United Boeing 757-200, registration N19136 performing flight UA-127 from Dublin (Ireland) to Washington Dulles,DC (USA), was enroute at FL320 about 75nm north of Shannon (Ireland) when the crew decided to return to Dublin reporting a technical problem. While descending towards Dublin the crew advised one of their airspeed indicators had failed and they were therefore unable to proceed with their Oceanic crossing, they were still checking whether their landing weight would permit a landing in Dublin or whether they needed the longer runway at Shannon. When descending through FL210 the crew reported they managed to restore their airspeed indicator and thus they were again able to cross the Ocean. The aircraft climbed back to cruise level and continued to Washington where the aircraft is estimated to arrive with a delay of 25 minutes.
