Plane makes precautionary landing in Phoenix

A possible mechanical problem has prompted the pilots of an American Airlines plane to make a precautionary landing in Phoenix.

The plane from Dallas landed safely Thursday night at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The flight was scheduled to land in Phoenix and wasn't diverted.

Kris Commerford, a supervisor with the airport's communications center, says the plane had a possible problem with its reverse thrusting system.
