RENO, Nev. (AP) — A Delta flight travelling from Boise, Idaho to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Reno.
KRNV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2xtGJ36) Reno Tahoe International Airport spokeswoman Trish Tucker confirms the plane was diverted Monday during the early morning hours.
A spokesperson for SkyWest, which was operating the flight as Delta Connection, says the diversion of Flight 4564 was due to a "mechanical indication."
The spokesperson says passengers left the plane at the gate, and mechanics inspected the plane before they returned to continue the flight to Los Angeles.
