A Delta Airlines Boeing 767 made an emergency landing at John F Kennedy Airport after reports of a fire on its left wing. Soon after take off the jet was forced to dump fuel and make an emergency landing, returning the nearly 200 passengers on board back to the airport.
Fire officials said there were no signs of any fires on board once the Delta Airlines jet had landed. But something must have spooked the pilots of flight 30 enough to proceed with an emergency landing only 50 minutes after takeoff. No injuries have been reported from this incident, and all passengers will be put onto another flight as soon as possible. The ill fated flight was initially headed to Moscow, a flight that takes over 10 hours.
No details of the real cause of the engine trouble have been reported at this time. However, it seems that everyone involved is fine and what at first sounded like another story of tragedy, has turned into a story with a happy ending, albeit confusing at this time. At least nobody was hurt and everyone is on their way to Moscow once again.
