LINTHICUM, Md. —A Boston-bound flight returned to Baltimore shortly after takeoff Monday evening.
A Southwest Airlines representative told 11 News that the pilot of Flight 281 returned the plane to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport because of a cockpit indication light. The pilot did not declare an emergency, the airline said.
As a precaution, emergency crews at the airport met the plane upon landing. The plane taxied to the gate under its own power.
The 135 customers and five crew members were being switched to another plane. They are scheduled to arrive in Boston about two hours behind schedule.
The original aircraft was taken out of service for a maintenance review.
Another plane, Flight 605 from Philadelphia to Phoenix, was diverted to BWI-Marshall for a minor maintenance issue. Passengers and crew members were swapped to another plane, and were on the way to Phoenix.
