Delta flight lands safely in Phoenix on 1 engine

By The Associated Press
PHOENIX (AP) A Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta to Phoenix had to make an emergency landing after an engine shut down as it began to descend over Arizona.

Delta spokesman Paul Skrbec says Flight 2046 carrying 159 passengers landed normally Saturday afternoon at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. It taxied to the gate under its own power.

The Boeing 757's left engine shut down as the plane began to descend, so the captain followed procedure and declared an emergency. Skrbec says there were no injuries but the airline apologized to the passengers.

The twin-engine 757 can fly safely on just one of its two engines.
