Delta Express From LGA Makes An Emergency Landing After Wheel Falls Off

Washington    A Delta Express plane made a safe emergency landing at Dulles International Airport on Tuesday afternoon after losing a left front tire.

Flight 5507 was en route to Richmond from LaGuardia Airport. The flight declared an emergency at 26,000 feet after the crew was notified they lost a wheel on takeoff.

The plane was inspected after landing at Dulles. It was missing the main gear wheel as pictures show via Twitter.

The plane was unable to taxi to the gate. Passengers were transferred to the gate.

Also Tuesday, a Dallas-bound Southwest Airlines flight made an emergency landing in Philadelphia. The jet’s left engine blew shortly after takeoff, NBC Philadelphia reported. A piece of shrapnel apparently flew into a window causing the glass to break and causing 10 injuries with one person in serious condition.
