DETROIT, Mich. - Some nervous moments aboard a Delta Airlines flight Monday morning when an engine blew out.
Delta flight 964 from New York’s La Guardia Airport to Detroit was carrying 154 people when the airline said there was some kind of “engine failure,” according to the Detroit Free Press.
“There was a crackling noise a couple of times, in the middle of the flight ,” a passenger in row 16, who did not want to be identified, told WWJ-TV.
The flight was able to make it to Detroit Metro Airport where it safely made an emergency landing.
"After receiving a report about a possible engine malfunction, our fire department and operations teams responded, awaiting the plane's arrival," airport spokeswoman Erica Donerson said in an email to the Free Press.
Delta said once on the ground, passengers “deplaned normally.”
