Emergency Landing At Louisville Airport
Officials say a UPS jet made a safe emergency landing after returning to Louisville International Airport after takeoff.
UPS spokesman Mike Mangeot told The Courier-Journal that the crew reported a problem with the plane's hydraulic system. A pilot and copilot were on board the Airbus jet headed to Manchester, N.H.
Louisville Regional Airport Authority spokeswoman Trish Burke said the crew called the problem into the Federal Aviation Administration tower just a few minutes after takeoff and about 25 miles from Louisville. The tower alerted airport emergency personnel. Burke said the plane landed around 4:30 p.m. EDT Wednesday. The plane will remain under inspection in a hangar until it's determined to be safe for flight.
