LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Southwest Airlines flight from Sacramento to Burbank had to make an emergency landing in Los Angeles after its wing flaps malfunctioned.
An airline spokesman says flight 1704 was safely diverted to Los Angeles International Airport Saturday after "an indication of a performance issues" with its wings flaps as it approached Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, Calif.
Flaps are part of the flight control system and impacts plane lift and speed. The spokesman says the system has built-in redundancies for safe operation in such a situation.
The spokesman says the airline worked with 81 customers on the flight to get them onto other flights or ground transportation.
He says the plane was out of service Saturday night, has been inspected and will be repaired before it's put back in use.
