Moscow-Bound Delta Plane Lands at JFK After Engine Shutdown

Nov. 21 (Bloomberg) -- A Delta Air Lines Inc. plane bound for Moscow from New York City returned to John F. Kennedy International Airport after one of its engines had an automatic shutdown, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

Delta Flight 30 landed safely at 5:49 p.m. local time and taxied to the ramp without further incident, FAA spokeswoman Holly Baker said in a telephone interview. Earlier reports of a fire on the Boeing 767 were not accurate, she said.

Firefighters and emergency personnel were called to the scene.

Baker said she didn’t know what time the airplane took off. The shutdown occurred in the left engine, Baker said. The airplane departed at 4:30 p.m., according to the FlightAware.com tracking website.

The FAA is investigating the incident, Baker said.

The airplane had 193 passengers and 11 crew members on board, CNN reported. They were to take a later flight tonight to Moscow.

A spokesman for Delta Air didn’t immediately return a phone call to Bloomberg News.
