american-eagleOn Friday afternoon, a flight of American Eagle travelling from New Bern to Charlotte was diverted to Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and it finally landed around 3.44 p.m.


The flight 5355 had to be diverted following a mechanical fault that had erupted inside the plane’s cockpit, when a certain indicator light was facing an issue.


It seemed that the plane had a problem with the right engine. The FAA asserted that the crew had reported a problem related to the thrust reverser.


The aircraft was carrying 53 people on board as well as 50 passengers and three crew members. Later, the plane taxied to the terminal a few minutes after the landing.


The passengers were all taken off from the aircraft.


Later in Friday evening, American Eagle said that it appeared to be a minor indicator issue.


In an email, the airlines said that the issue was finally rectified and the plane was able to depart for Charlotte. PSA Airlines had operated the flight and left Coastal Carolina Regional Airport via the route to Charlotte.


The aircraft is actually a Bombardier CRJ-200, according to Ross Feinstein, the official spokesman for American Airlines.


He went on to offer an apology to the passengers for the inconvenience.
