Landing-gear alert forces flight back to Phoenix
PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a possible hydraulic issue forced a Delta Air Lines flight carrying 160 travelers from Arizona to Minnesota to return to the Phoenix airport.
Delta spokeswoman Lindsay McDuff says Flight 1492 was headed to Minneapolis-St. Paul on Monday morning when the crew saw a warning about the right main landing gear after departure.
Federal Aviation Administration officials say the MD-90 plane landed without incident at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport at 8:15 a.m. due to the reported hydraulic issue.
McDuff says the 160 passengers are being accommodated on other Delta flights and technicians at Sky Harbor are checking the plane.
