MORRISVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A passenger plane landed safely at Raleigh-Durham International in North Carolina after experiencing engine trouble on a flight from Tampa, Florida, to New York-LaGuardia.

Spokesman Andrew Sawyer said the airport was notified about 8:30 a.m. Monday that Delta flight 2135 had developed engine problems and was going to make an emergency landing.

Sawyer said the Boeing 717 landed about 9:40 a.m. after burning off fuel.

Sawyer said the plane was able to taxi to a gate after the landing.

Delta spokesman Michael Thomas said another jet was flown to Raleigh to continue the flight to New York.
