American Airlines flight makes emergency landing at Little Rock National Airport/Adams Field

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — An American Airlines flight that originated at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport made an unexpected landing in Little Rock Monday evening.

Officials at Little Rock National Airport told KARK that Flight 1366 landed around 5:30 after being diverted from its original destination of Memphis, Tennessee and 47 minutes after taking off from D/FW.

Pilots made the decision to change the flight plan after a cockpit instrument indicated a problem with the oil level in one of the aircraft's two engines.

Airport officials said all 130 people on board the MD-80 jet were safe, and that American was dispatching another plane to take the passengers on to Memphis.
