Officials say a UPS jet has made a safe emergency landing after returning to Louisville International Airport just a few minutes after takeoff.
Louisville Regional Airport Authority spokeswoman Trish Burke said the crew called the problem into the Federal Aviation Administration tower just a few minutes after takeoff and about 25 miles from Louisville. The tower alerted airport emergency personnel.
Burke said the plane landed around 4:30 p.m. EDT Wednesday.
Mangeot said the plane will remain under inspection in a hangar until it's determined to be safe for flight.
