Incident occurred April 28, 2017 at Green Bay-Austin Straubel International Airport (KGRB), Ashwaubenon, Brown County, Wisconsin

ASHWAUBENON - A report of a mechanical problem on a commercial airliner brought firefighters racing to Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport Friday. The jet landed safely.

The pilot of Delta flight 3682 from Minneapolis-St. Paul declared an emergency while on final approach to Austin Straubel and asked that emergency equipment be summoned "as a precaution," said Tom Miller, Brown County's airport director. Firefighters from several area departments were quickly ordered to the airport, though they ended up not being needed.

The flight, with 48 passengers and three crew members, landed without incident about 11:05 a.m. It was at the terminal a few minutes later. Passengers disembarked without incident.

"The pilot landed the aircraft and taxied (it) to the gate under its own power," Miller said.

The plane, a Canadair regional jet, experienced an unspecified mechanical problem.
