ATLANTA — Delta Air Lines officials say a plane headed to Minneapolis returned to Atlanta because its landing gear was stuck in the downward position.
Delta spokesman Morgan Durrant says the airline expected to transfer 159 passengers a different aircraft for a second departure from Atlanta on Thursday evening.
Durrant says the plane in question was a Boeing MD90 and the aircraft landed safely before passengers prepared for their second departure.
Details on what may have caused the landing gear problem weren't immediately available.
