SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (CBS SF) — An American Airlines plane, which departed San Francisco International Airport Monday, had to turn around and make an emergency landing at SFO after experiencing a blown air duct outside the cabin, according to an airline spokesman.
American Airlines said flight 2293 bound for Dallas-Fort Worth returned to SFO at 2:15 p.m. Monday after departing at 1:16 p.m. Oxygen masks aboard the Boeing 757-200 did not deploy, the airport duty manager said.
The caption on an image posted on Twitter claims the plane’s interior walls began buckling after takeoff.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor told Bay City News Service the agency would work with the airline to determine the problem before the plane flies again.
Despite an original report from the airport duty manager of a loss of cabin pressure, the airline spokesman said the cabin did not lose pressure and that no one was injured.
