Cards Plane Makes Emergency Landing

As reported by the Courier-Journal. Glad that everybody is OK...

A charter plane carrying the University of Louisville basketball team to Tampa had to return to Louisville for an emergency landing after an engine caught fire.
Kenny Klein, U of L’s associate athletic director for media relations, said the team was 10 to 15 minutes into its flight when it turned around.
He said the team was not told about the engine fire until the plane was safely on the ground.

We had no idea what was going on until we landed and everything was safe at that point,” Klein said.
He said the pilot walked back into the passenger area “and told us what was happening. There was no alarm on our part.

Klein said the team was watching game film in preparation for its game tomorrow night at South Florida while waiting for another plane.
