Plane leaving Houston makes emergency landing, none injured
A plane leaving Houston made an emergency landing Monday afternoon but none aboard got injured, authorities said, according to Xinhua.
The Continental flight made the emergency landing after its captain suspected a hydraulic problem, said Joe Williams, spokesman for Pinnacle Airlines, the parent company of Colgan Air which owns the plane.
None of the 16 passengers or three crew members on board the SAAB-0340 was injured, Williams said. The plane was towed to a hangar for inspection.
A Continental Connection flight, operated by Colgan Air, crashed in suburban Buffalo last month, killing 49 people on board and another person on ground.
