Detroit-Hartford Flight Makes Emergency Landing

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) – Authorities say a Delta passenger airplane has made an emergency landing at Syracuse Hancock International Airport after one of its engines failed.

Syracuse Department of Aviation Commissioner Christina Callahan tells WSYR-TV that the MD-80 with 102 people on board landed safely at the airport around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday after the pilot reported that one of the two engines wasn’t working.

The flight originated in Detroit and was headed to Hartford, Conn., when it was diverted to Syracuse.

No other information is immediately available.
