Weather radar problem

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


A Boeing 777, was flying from New York (USA) to Cairo (Egypt). While it was enroute over the Atlantic Ocean, there was a problem with the weather radar. The crew couldn’t use it to see the weather ahead of them. They decided to divert to Dublin because they knew there was bad weather ahead and it was too dangerous to continue without the radar. They landed 45 minutes later in Dublin airport and requested a maintenance check. Because of the expected delay, the passengers were disembarked and put up in a hotel for the night. Another plane arrived the next morning to continue the flight.
