Jet makes emergency landing in NC after oil leak

Oil leak forces American Airlines jet to make safe emergency landing at Raleigh-Durham Airport By The Associated Press

MORRISVILLE, N.C. (AP) ' Leaking oil forced an American Airlines passenger plane to make an emergency landing at Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

Airport officials said the pilot noticed the leak shortly after taking off from Raleigh for Chicago around 8:15 a.m. Sunday. The first attempt at an emergency landing was scrapped, but the pilot brought the plane down safely as emergency crews stood by on the second attempt.

Authorities say none of the 138 passengers on the MD-83 jet were injured.



American Airlines was bringing in another plane to take the passengers to Chicago.
