Posted October 25, 2011
Morrisville, N.C. — A plane flying out of Raleigh Durham International Airport had to be turned around shortly after take-off Tuesday night due to a mechanical problem, airport officials said.
The Delta flight, which was headed to Minneapolis, landed back at RDU without incident around 9 p.m. It took off again a little more than an hour later.
An airport spokesman said the landing was just a precaution and that the mechanical problem was minor.
