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


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.
