      Military flight forced to land in St. Louis


      Engine troubles forced a charter flight carrying more than 100 military personnel headed to Indianapolis from Fort Hood, Texas, to make an unplanned landing in St. Louis.


      The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/O6LFwN) reports the Delta charter made the precautionary landing at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport at 4:10 a.m. Saturday.


      Airport spokesman Jeff Lea says the airport deployed emergency equipment, but the plane landed without incident.


      He says the passengers were transferred to another plane and departed at 8:45 a.m.
