An American Airlines plane flying to Charlotte from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport made an unplanned stop in Indianapolis Tuesday night.
An indicator light on Flight 1277 came on, possibly a signal of a mechanical concern. The alert reportedly led to an emergency landing, according to WBTV, the Observer’s news partner.
A video posted on Twitter suggested Carolina Panthers cornerback Charles Tillman may have been on board the plane. The tweet from @peanuttillman said, “Hopefully this will be my first and only emergency landing... #thankyouJesus”
