INDIANAPOLIS - Four aircraft have made emergency landings at Indianapolis International Airport within one day.
Airport spokesman Carlo Bertolini says a United Airlines regional jet landed about five minutes early shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday after reporting a possible problem with an auxiliary power unit. He had no further details.
A military A10 aircraft headed from Camp Atterbury to Fort Wayne also landed safely after diverting to Indianapolis shortly before noon due to a fuel indicator problem. Bertolini says the pilot was the only person aboard.
And a Delta flight carrying 112 people from Milwaukee to Atlanta landed about 2:45 p.m. due to engine trouble. Bertolini says a Delta maintenance crew was checking out the aircraft.
Later Tuesday evening, a private Learjet was forced to touch down in Indianapolis after a warning light went off, officials said.
No injuries were reported in any of the incidents. Officials said it is extremely unusual for a single airport to deal with so many unexpected landings in one day.
