WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A regional airliner with 84 passengers on board safely made an emergency landing in Wichita after the plane had cabin pressurization problems.
No one was injured during Wednesday afternoon’s landing by the Bombardier CRJ-900 at Wichita’s Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport.
Airport spokeswoman Valerie Wise says the flight was operated by Mesa Airlines for American and had taken off from Wichita and was headed to Dallas-Ft. Worth. She says the plane wasn’t in the air for very long before the pilot declared an emergency around 2:20 p.m. and returned to the airport.
She had no further details.
