Engineers from Airbus are heading to Liverpool to look into the wing flap problem which saw the giant Beluga cargo plane diverted from Broughton over the weekend.
The Beluga wing transporter was due to land at Hawarden airport on Sunday afternoon but developed an issue with the wing flaps , which are used when an aircraft is slowing down in preparation for landing.
It saw the plane circling around the Mold area before being diverted to Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
The issue meant the plane was forced to land at a faster speed, and the runway at Liverpool airport is longer than the one at Broughton.
Emergency crews were put on alert and the plane landed safely at around 5.30pm.
Now Airbus engineers are on route to Liverpool to carry out a repair on the aircraft before it is cleared for take off again.

Airbus said this was an isolated technical issue and there is no suggestion of a wider problem with the Beluga fleet, which transport wings from Broughton to final assembly lines in Toulouse, Hamburg and Seville.
An Airbus spokesman said: “We can confirm the Beluga diverted to Liverpool Airport due to a technical issue.
"Safety is our top priority and the aircraft went on to land without incident.
"Flight crews receive extensive training to handle a range of in service issues that may arise."
Liverpool airport said they expected the plane to remain at the airport for a couple of days and had the space to accommodate it while any repair was carried out.
