Authorities say a possible hydraulic issue forced a Delta Air Lines flight carrying 160 travelers from Arizona to Minnesota to return to the Phoenix airport.

Delta spokeswoman Lindsay McDuff says Flight 1492 was headed to Minneapolis-St. Paul on Monday morning when the crew saw a warning about the right main landing gear after departure.

Federal Aviation Administration officials say the MD-90 plane landed without incident at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport at 8:15 a.m. due to the reported hydraulic issue.

McDuff says the 160 passengers are being accommodated on other Delta flights and technicians at Sky Harbor are checking the plane.
