KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) A Delta Airlines jet was forced to return to the airport in Jamaica shortly after takeoff Monday because of an apparent mechanical problem in one of its engines, the company said. <br />
The MD-88 experienced a pneumatic leak in its No. 2 engine and returned safely to the airport in Kingston, spokesman Morgan Durrant said. <br />
The Atlanta-bound flight had 149 passengers and a crew of five. <br />
Jamaica Fire Brigade spokesman Emilio Ebanks told RJR News in Jamaica that the plane was airborne when smoke was seen coming from it. Durrant says there was no fire. <br />
Delta planned to re-route a new aircraft to Jamaica for the flight to Atlanta.
