ATLANTA (AP) — Delta Air Lines officials say a plane headed to Minneapolis returned to Atlanta because its landing gear was stuck in the downward position.

Delta spokesman Morgan Durrant says the airline expected to transfer 159 passengers a different aircraft for a second departure from Atlanta on Thursday evening.

Durrant says the plane in question was a Boeing MD90 and the aircraft landed safely before passengers prepared for their second departure.

Details on what may have caused the landing gear problem weren’t immediately available.
