FedEx Jet Makes Emergency Landing In Sacramento

SACRAMENTO (AP) – A FedEx cargo jet has landed safely at Sacramento International Airport after running low on fuel.

Airport spokeswoman Gina Swankie says the plane landed without incident just before 8 a.m. Thursday.

The pilot declared an in-flight emergency aboard FedEx flight 1490 because of the low fuel level.

The Airbus A310 jet had been en route from Memphis, Tenn., to Reno, Nev. Swankie says Reno was fogged in, so the plane and its four crew members diverted to Sacramento.
