On Wednesday, June 28, 2023, Delta Air Lines Flight 1092 experienced a mechanical issue while en route from Atlanta (ATL) to Charlotte (CLT).
The aircraft, a Boeing 717-2BD, circled CLT Airport multiple times before making an emergency landing. Passengers were bussed to the terminal and no injuries were reported. Runway 18R/36L is currently closed while crews work to remove the aircraft and reopen the runway. Delays and cancellations have begun piling up due to the incident.
Delta Airlines has been leasing Boeing 717s since 2013, and there have been five other incidents involving the aircraft.
