An airliner flying from Los Angeles to Abu Dhabi has made an emergency landing in Scotland.
The Etihad Airways Boeing 777 diverted north of Shetland shortly before 10am on Thursday.
A passenger aboard had reported that he was suffering chest pain, it is understood.
The airliner touched down safely at Edinburgh Airport at around 10.05am.
An Etihad spokeswoman said: "As a result of the diversion, the flight will incur a delay of two hours and 30 minutes.
"The airline is assisting guests whose travel plans have been disrupted by the delay with rebooking of flights."
"Etihad Airways regrets any inconvenience resulting from the diversion," she added.
The plane, which can carry nearly 400 passengers, flew to Edinburgh over Scotland's east coast.
