An American Airlines flight thought to have landing gear troubles landed safely at La Plata-Durango Airport, an airport representative said at 11:40 a.m. Wednesday.
Kip Turner, director of aviation, said American Airlines flight 3140 reported it had potential gear trouble, but ultimately landed without issue at 11:37 a.m.
“I’m sure they’ll look for maintenance issues,” he said. “But everything is good.”
According to the American Airlines website, the plane departed from Grand Junction and was headed to Dallas-Fort Worth, but was diverted to La Plata-Durango. Turner did not know why the plane had redirected toward La Plata County.
According to the police scanner, about 45 passengers are on board the commercial flight.
