Delta Jet from Detroit Lands Safely Despite Engine Trouble

A Delta regional jet with 52 people onboard has made a safe landing in Syracuse after developing trouble with one of its engines.

 A city aviation spokeswoman, Christina Reale, said a low oil pressure gauge lit up when the twin-engine plane heading from Detroit to Syracuse was about 5 miles from its destination shortly after midday Monday.  

The pilot shut down the engine and declared an emergency landing. The plane landed without incident at Syracuse Hancock International Airport.
