June 12, 2019

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A regional passenger jet made an emergency landing at Fargo’s airport after developing a mechanical issue.

Officials say the American Eagle plane flying from the Dallas-Fort Worth airport to Bismarck diverted to Fargo Wednesday morning. Hector International Airport Executive Director Shawn Dobberstein tells KFGO the plane carrying about 60 passengers had some type of mechanical problem. The jet landed safely.

One of the passengers, Tyler Morgan, of Abilene, Texas, says he was told there was a problem with the tires or landing gear on the plane’s left side. Mesa Airlines operates the jet under the American Eagle banner.
