Atlanta-bound Delta flight makes emergency landing at Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS -

A Delta MD-88 landed safely in Indianapolis after a problem with the aircraft's left engine forced it to divert.

The flight from Milwaukee was headed to Atlanta when the pilot made the emergency landing at Indianapolis International Airport. 112 people were on board.

The airport said it was a left engine compression problem.

No one was injured.

Airport spokesman Carlo Bertolini says a United Airlines regional jet landed about five minutes early shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday after reporting a possible problem with an auxiliary power unit. He had no further details.

A military A10 aircraft headed from Camp Atterbury to Fort Wayne also landed safely after diverting to Indianapolis shortly before noon due to a fuel indicator problem. Bertolini says the pilot was the only person aboard.

Bertolini says it's unusual for the airport to have three emergency landings in one day.
