United Flight Diverts Due to Faulty Warning Light
Flight 306, an Airbus 319, with 109 passengers and crew on board landed around 11 a.m., the Associated Press reports.
The warning light wrongly indicated there was smoke in the cargo area. United spokesman Mike Trevino says someone also reported a smoky smell in the cabin. Airport firefighters found no visible smoke anywhere in the plane and no injuries were reported.
Passengers boarded a replacement plane in Grand Junction at about 2 p.m. to continue their flight to Baltimore.
Last night United Airlines temporarily grounded its fleet of 96 Boeing 757 airplanes after discovering required safety checks had not been performed.
