An airplane headed from Duluth, Minn., to Las Vegas had to turn around and make an emergency landing after running into engine trouble.
Brian Ryks, executive director of the Duluth Airport Authority, says the Allegiant Air plane landed safely just before 9 p.m. Friday at Duluth International Airport. National Guard firefighters and other emergency responders were standing by.
The Duluth News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/M3bYRt ) one engine failed about 50 miles into the trip and the crew shut it down, declared an emergency and headed back to the airport.
There were no reported injuries. The plane had about 140 passengers and five crew members.
Lisa Clements of Chisholm says she heard a loud bang about 15 minutes into the flight.
