Sun Country Flight Headed For Montego Bay Turns Around Due To Mechanical Problem

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) - A mechanical issue forced a Sun County flight heading to Montego Bay to turn around and land back in Minneapolis on Saturday morning.

The flight departed from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport at 8:47 a.m. but landed back in the Twin Cities after an hour and a half in the air.

Director of Communications at MSP Airport Patrick Hogan says the sensor on the plane was not working correctly.

A Sun Country spokesperson says the flight was rescheduled to depart at 2 p.m. Passengers were offered meal vouchers.
