Flight Returns to O'Hare After Departure

American Eagle plane was bound for Fargo, N.D.

An American Eagles plane bound for Fargo, N.D., returned to O’ Hare International Airport shortly after takeoff Thursday night.

Flight 4088 left O'Hare at about 8:35 p.m. and was back on the ground about 13 minutes later, said Department of Aviation spokeswoman Karen Pride.

Emergency personnel were called to the scene to check out the plane, Pride said.

Pride could not confirm the reason for the return of the plane and stand-by, which sends emergency vehicles to a staging area near a runway. American Airlines spokesman Jim Faulkner told the Chicago Tribune a cockpit indicator alerted the pilot to an issue with the air compression of one of the engines.

According to Faulkner, there were no injuries.

American Eagle is a regional partner of American Airlines. Chicago police did not have any details.
