TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- A Delta Airlines flight experienced engine failure after taking off from Kansas City International Airport Monday night.
Kansas City Fire Department crews got to the airport just before 6:30 p.m., about 15 minutes before Delta Flight #1214 made an emergency landing.
Airport officials said 73 passengers and crew were on board. The flight took off from KCI at 6:01 p.m and was scheduled to travel to Detroit.
Some passengers said they felt bumps and vibrations about 20 minutes into the flight. The pilot then alerted the passengers and crew that they were turning around because power had been lost to the right engine.
