RENO, Nev. (AP) - In a story Sept. 12 about an emergency landing in Reno, The Associated Press reported erroneously the manner in which passengers left the plane. A Skywest spokesperson said passengers left the plane normally at the gate and were not evacuated.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Los Angeles-bound flight makes emergency landing in Reno

A Delta flight travelling from Boise, Idaho to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Reno

RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Delta flight travelling from Boise, Idaho to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Reno.

KRNV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2xtGJ36) Reno Tahoe International Airport spokeswoman Trish Tucker confirms the plane was diverted Monday during the early morning hours.

A spokesperson for SkyWest, which was operating the flight as Delta Connection, says the diversion of Flight 4564 was due to a “mechanical indication.”

The spokesperson says passengers left the plane at the gate, and mechanics inspected the plane before they returned to continue the flight to Los Angeles.
