DENVER (AP) — The Federal Aviation Administration says a Delta Airlines flight that originated from Boston made an emergency landing in Denver because hail damaged the plane.
FAA spokesman Ian McGregor tells The Denver Post (http://goo.gl/hYP2KT ) that the plane landed safely at Denver International Airport at 8:42 p.m. Friday. The flight’s destination was Salt Lake City International Airport.
McGregor says hail pelted the plane, damaged its nose cone and cracked its windshield.
The federal agency continues to investigate.
