An American Airlines flight headed to Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) from Palm Springs International (PSP) yesterday afternoon diverted the flight to Los Angeles (LAX) when the pilot detected an overheating engine.
Flight 1280 landed safely at LAX 32 minutes after departure and there were no injuries.
Passengers were put on another American flight and reached Chicago O’Hare with a delay of about 4 hours.
There is no report yet on the condition of the aircraft.
