Plane Makes Emergency Landing In Lexington

There was a scare in the air for people aboard a plane headed to Nashville, Tennessee from Reagan National Airport in Washington, DC late Monday night.

US Airways flight 4029 made an emergency landing at Lexington's Blue Grass Airport just after 11:30 p.m.

A US Airways spokesman tells 27 NEWSFIRST the pilot believed one of the plane's engines failed when he noticed a low oil pressure warning.

The pilot told passengers over the plane's P.A. system that the plane would have to land in Lexington.

Police officers blocked the area of Versailles Rd. at Man O'War Blvd. as a precaution.

The plane landed without incident.

The airline offered ground transportation or hotels for the flight's 39 passengers.

The plane is a CRJ 200.
