Plattsburgh-bound flight makes emergency landing

Wilmington, North Carolina - October 24, 2011

An airliner headed from Florida to Plattsburgh made an emergency landing in North Carolina.

The Allegiant Air jet was carrying about 145 people Sunday. An airline spokeswoman says an oil filter light came on in the cockpit forcing the pilot to land in Wilmington, North Carolina. The plane landed safely and there were no injuries.

Allegiant offers direct flights from Plattsburgh to Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and St. Petersburg. The service targets vacationers from the Montreal area who can save money by making the short drive to Plattsburgh.
