American Airlines Facility in Tulsa

No one is injured as an American Airlines jet makes an emergency landing in Tulsa. The 767 was in Tulsa for service work at the  American Airlines Base. During a test flight, the pilot declared an emergency and quickly returned to the Tulsa International Airport.

Because it was a test flight, only four people were on board the jet. It landed without incident at the Tulsa Airport. Fire crews where dispatched to the run way, just in case, there was a more serious problem.
