Several Florida airports suffered delays and cancellations because of a radar malfunction that forced several planes to stay on the ground for long periods of time, U.S. air authorities reported.

The setbacks that slowed traffic in Florida airspace on Monday were due to “a problem with the air traffic computer,” said the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which added that by the end of the day the problem was resolved.
