DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A Southwest Airlines flight from Nashville, Tennessee, had to make an unscheduled landing at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
A statement from the airline says the Monday night flight was redirected from Dallas Love Field Airport to DFW after a “cockpit instrument indicated one of the flaps might not fully have extended” and the landing could possibly require the plane to touch down at a higher speed.READ MORE: Dallas Police Searching For Animal Cruelty Suspect Who Shot Pitbull-Type Dog
The plane had left Nashville International Airport around 8:30 p.m.
Southwest says the captain used the longest available runway at DFW and emergency vehicles were positioned nearby to monitor the landing, which was ultimately “uneventful.”READ MORE: BNSF Railroad Unions Can't Strike Over New Attendance Policy, Federal Judge Rules
