Boeing plane forced to make emergency landing at LAX after possible mechanical issue

Date:

An American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing in California Wednesday evening after its pilot reported a possible mechanical issue, the airline said.

Flight 345, which took off from Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, reported the issue with the Boeing 777 plane and ultimately landed at the Los Angeles International Airport at approximately 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday without any incident, American Airlines said in a statement on Thursday.

“The aircraft taxied to the gate under its own power and customers deplaned normally,” it added.

“There are some reports that it was a blown tire, but American is not confirming that,” FOX Business’ Cheryl Casone reported earlier Thursday morning.

FOX Business reached out to both American Airlines and Boeing for additional information but a response was not immediately received.

There were no reported injuries by the crew and passengers from the emergency landing.

 

The aircraft is a 23-year-old Boeing 777 plane, according to Airfleets Aviation.

This is at least the fifth reported incident with a major airline plane in the past week.

Reuters contributed to this report.
