INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Three aircraft have made emergency landings at Indianapolis International Airport within one day.

Airport spokesman Carlo Bertolini says a United Airlines regional jet landed about five minutes early shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday after reporting a possible problem with an auxiliary power unit. He had no further details.

A military A10 aircraft headed from Camp Atterbury to Fort Wayne also landed safely after diverting to Indianapolis shortly before noon due to a fuel indicator problem. Bertolini says the pilot was the only person aboard.

And a Delta flight carrying 112 people from Milwaukee to Atlanta landed about 2:45 p.m. due to engine trouble. Bertolini says a Delta maintenance crew was checking out the aircraft.

Bertolini says it’s unusual for the airport to have three emergency landings in one day.
