LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB and AP) -- Officials say a UPS jet has made a safe emergency landing after returning to Louisville International Airport just a few minutes after takeoff.
UPS spokesman Mike Mangeot told WDRB News that the crew reported a possible problem with the plane's hydraulic system and asked to make the emergency landing. A warning light alerted the crew, Mangeot said. A pilot and copilot were on board the Airbus A300 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.
Mangeot said the plane will remain under inspection in a hangar until it's determined to be safe for flight.
