US Airways jet diverted after landing gear glitch

More by this author

A US Airways plane en route to Indianapolis has been diverted to an Ohio airport after the crew reported a problem with the landing gear.

Airline spokesman Todd Lehmacher (LEE’-mahk-ER) says the Canadair Regional Jet landed safely at Dayton International Airport at about 6 p.m. Thursday. Lehmacher says US Airways Express Flight 2582 was canceled and the passengers were taken by bus to Indianapolis.

Lehmacher says a maintenance crew in Dayton is checking the airplane to see what caused a “gear disagree” light to flash. That prompted the precautionary landing.

Lehmacher says the Canadair Regional Jet took off from Charlotte, N.C., at about 4:10 p.m. The plane is owned by PSA, a wholly owned subsidiary of US Airways.
