Engine Trouble Prompts Emergency Landing In LR
(AP) - Officials say no one was injured when an American Airlines flight en route from North Carolina to Dallas made an emergency landing in Little Rock because of engine trouble.
Officials say the American Airlines MD-80 was en route to Dallas from Charlotte Sunday when one of the engines went out and the pilot decided to land in Little Rock.
Shane Carter, a spokesman for the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, says emergency crews were on hand but the plane landed safely.
Carter says the plane had 135 people on board, including passengers and flight crew.
Mechanics were working on the plane Sunday and passengers were being rerouted to other flights.
