Delta Airlines flightA Delta Air Lines flight that was heading to Netherlands from Atlanta was compelled to make an emergency landing in Newfoundland late Thursday after confronting with what the airline described as an ‘engine performance issue’.

 

Delta flight 70 had taken off around 3.31 p.m.

 

It was expected to make a landing in Amsterdam just prior to 6 a.m. on Friday.

 

Instead the flight was able to make it only briefly off the northeast coast of Canada before it was forced to turn around and land in Goose Bay located in Newfoundland. The flight thereafter landed without any complications and nobody had been injured.

 

In its official statement the airlines said that Delta flight 30 was traveling to Amsterdam from Atlanta had experienced an engine performance trouble en route.

 

It added that the plane was then able to land absolutely safely and the passengers disembarked. The passengers, it said would be continuing to Amsterdam on an alternative airplane today. Delta is in constant contact with the passengers and extended an apology for the inconvenience.

 

Air traffic control audio recordings from the cockpit indicated that the airplane had been experiencing engine failure and had issued a declaration of emergency prior to the landing.

 

When the aircraft was inspected it was discovered that the four pressure relief valve doors on the engine had been blown open that had actually caused the complication and the subsequent emergency landing.
