Plane Makes Emergency Landing At Blue Grass Airport

A plane taking off from Blue Grass Airport reached its destination, hours after it was scheduled to land.

Express Jet flight 2274 first took off just before 6:30 Monday morning but quickly turned around and had to make an emergency landing.

Officials say the plane had maintenance problems shortly after taking off. Workers checked it out and cleared the plane to take off again.

Blue Grass Airport officials tell us these kinds of incidents are not that uncommon.
