Delta: Engine issue reroutes plane back to Richmond International Airport (KRIC), Virginia

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A Delta flight spent just seven minutes in the air before returning to Richmond International Airport on Saturday.

RIC spokesperson Troy Bell confirmed to NBC12 that Flight 3910 was en route to JFK when the plane returned because of a "mechanical concern."

NBC12 reached out to Delta and spokesperson Lindsay McDuff said the flight, which is operated by Pinnacle Airlines, elected to return due to an issue with the right engine. 

The CRJ-200 twin jet landed at RIC at 2:50 p.m.

McDuff told NBC12 the plane landed without incident and "passengers were re-accommodated on another aircraft."

31 people were on the flight at the time. Nobody was hurt.
