KTVT / CBS
An American Airlines plane was forced to make an emergency landing Monday evening at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport after burning off fuel for nearly two hours.
Flight 1654 left DFW Airport at 5:00 p.m. Monday afternoon, headed for Baltimore/Washington International Airport. But shortly after takeoff, one of the plane's tires blew and the pilot declared an emergency.
The MD80 circled the sky to burn fuel before safely landing at DFW Airport just before 7:00 p.m.
Passengers de-boarded and were taken to a terminal to be put on other flights. No one was injured.
