U.S. Airways Jet Diverted After Landing Gear Glitch

A US Airways plane that took off from Charlotte en route to Indianapolis was diverted after the crew reported a problem with the landing gear.

Airline spokesman Todd Lehmacher says the Canadair Regional Jet landed safely at about 6 p.m. Thursday in Dayton. Lehmacher says US Airways Express Flight 2582 was canceled and the passengers were transported by bus to Indianapolis.

Lehmacher says a crew at the airport's maintenance facility is checking the airplane to see what caused a "gear disagree" light to flash, prompting the precautionary landing.

Lehmacher says the Canadair Regional Jet took off from Charlotte, N.C. at about 4:10 p.m. The plane is owned by PSA, a wholly-owned subsidiary of US Airways.
