SEATTLE — A Boeing 757 operated by Delta Air Lines flying to Seattle from Atlanta made an emergency landing after the flight crew noticed an indicator warning of a possible problem with one of its engines.
The company said in a statement that Delta flight 2123 was diverted Monday to Salt Lake City “out of an abundance of caution,” The Seattle Times reported. The plane landed and fire crews at the airport said the engine did not appear to be damaged.
The 16-year-old jetliner was powered by Pratt & Whitney engines, the same manufacturer behind two Saturday engine failures on Boeing planes. The engine of a Boeing 777 operated by United Airlines exploded shortly after takeoff from Denver on a Hawaii-bound flight. In the Netherlands, the engine of a Boeing 747 freighter exploded over the Dutch down of Meerssen. The hailstorm of falling engine parts injured two people and damaged property.
Both jetliners made emergency landings without further incident. On Monday, the European aviation safety commission said the engine problems experienced by those two planes appeared to be unrelated.
Boeing declined to respond to questions from the newspaper.
