Emergency landing at Rick Husband International Airport

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - 34 people aboard an American Eagle flight to Dallas are safe after having to make an emergency landing at Rick Husband International Airport, Saturday evening.

Just after 5:00 the plane was forced to land as a precaution because airport staff say the crew heard a funny noise near the landing gear when it took off from Garden City Kansas.

Emergency crews were called to the scene but the plane landed safely and everyone on board is said to be fine.
