Monday, June 04, 2012

Fire crews were called to the scene of an aircraft emergency at Philadelphia International Airport.

Initial reports indicate the pilots of the AirTran plane were concerned the plane was leaking fuel.

Chopper 6 showed fire crews trailing the plane after it landed on the tarmac.

All passengers, approximately 28, exited safely from the plane.

Mechanics will now examine the plane to determine if there was indeed a problem.
