AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A US Airways Express flight bound for North Carolina has safely returned to Texas after a cockpit light indicated a possible problem with one of the two engines.
The Austin American-Statesman (http://bit.ly/1oMVD6b ) reports Flight 2896 left Austin-Bergstrom International Airport for Charlotte, North Carolina, but returned Sunday afternoon. Nobody was hurt.
US Airways spokeswoman Liz Landau on Monday said the plane, operated by Mesa Airlines, carried 79 passengers and a four-person crew.
Landau says the CRJ-900 was about an hour into the flight when an engine indicator light went on. She says the airline is looking into the problem.
Passengers were routed on other flights.
