An American Eagle flight traveling to Columbia from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport landed safely at Columbia Metropolitan Airport Friday morning, following reported troubles during the landing, officials said.
The pilots of American Eagle Flight 2777, operated by ExpressJet Airlines, declared an emergency upon landing just before 11 a.m. at Columbia Metropolitan Airport, according to an email from Ross Feinstein, a spokesman with American Airlines.
The plane, carrying 39 passengers and three crew members, landed safely and taxied to the gate, according to the email, and no injuries were reported.
Later Friday, Feinstein said a faulty indicator light was the cause of the alert upon landing.
The plane was delayed about an hour and 15 minutes for maintenance in Columbia before flying back to Dallas, Feinstein said.
