DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Korean Airlines flight 32 out of DFW bound for Seoul had to turn around and make an emergency landing at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport Sunday afternoon.

An engine problem was to blame, according to a spokesman for the airport, David Magana.

“It must be a slow news day, this is no big deal,” he added.

The Boeing 777 was towed into an inspection hangar after the emergency landing.

There aren’t any reports of injuries in connection with the incident. The investigation into what specifically led the pilots to declare the emergency is on-going.
