Denver Bound Flight Diverted To Kansas Airport

KSAL StaffJanuary 28, 2014

A United Airlines commuter flight bound for Denver landed safely at Wichita’s airport because of trouble with one of the plane’s wings.

Airport officials say the Embraer 145 jet landed Monday night at Mid-Continent Airport after the pilot reported problems with a part that controls the plane’s ability to turn.

The flight, with 39 passengers aboard, took off from Shreveport, La. The pilot first reported problems about 50 miles from the airport.

Police, fire and rescue personnel were on hand but the plane landed without problems and no injuries were reported.
