UPS plane makes emergency landing at Louisville airport

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A UPS cargo plane that made an emergency
landing at Louisville International Airport was checked and put
back into service the same night.
UPS spokeswoman Jackie Blair says the Boeing 747 took off at
5:18 p.m. Wednesday evening. About 20 minutes into the flight,
pilots heard a noise and were notified of "multiple system
failures" and decided to turn the plane around and return to
Louisville. She compared the warning to a car's "check engine"
light coming on.
She says the plane circled to burn off some fuel before landing.
Blair says she has not been notified what caused the problem,
but the plane was inspected by a repair crew and flew again
Wednesday night.
The 747 model 400 can carry 250,000 pounds of cargo. Two people
were on board the Louisville flight.
