Angels charter makes emergency landing

A charter flight carrying members of the Los Angeles Angels has
made an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport.

Airport spokeswoman Katherine Alvarado says the Delta Air Lines
Inc. plane had experienced some type of mechanical problem before
it landed Wednesday shortly after 9 p.m.

Angels spokesman Tim Mead told KCAL-TV that the team usually
lands at Orange County’s John Wayne airport, but was redirected due
to what the pilot had referred to as possible hydraulic
problems.

Mead says the club was returning from Kansas City, where they
lost to the Royals earlier Wednesday 2-0. Alvarado says there were
60 people aboard the flight.

Delta did not immediately respond to a telephone message left by
The Associated Press after business hours.
