INDIANAPOLIS — A Frontier Airlines flight on its way from Washington, D.C. to Denver made an emergency landing in Indianapolis Wednesday night.
Passengers aboard flight 419 said they smelled something awful.
Emergency vehicles with flashing lights waited for the plane. It landed safely and all 171 people on board were OK.
Officials told FOX59 in Indianapolis that hydraulic issues prompted the pilots of the Airbus A320 to make the unscheduled stop. That plane remained grounded in Indianapolis.
Passengers transferred to another plane. They were expected to land in Denver at about 1 a.m. Thursday… about five hours late.
