Jet with steering failure lands safely at KCI

Despite a steering failure and a snowstorm, pilots managed to land a Midwest Airlines jet safely this afternoon at Kansas City International Airport, officials said.

Several Fire Department pumpers were on standby waiting for Flight 1581 from New York to land. The landing was tense but safe, and no one was injured.

“It even got in a minute early,” said Joe McBride, KCI spokesman.
