KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A regularly scheduled Delta flight from Detroit to Kansas City made an emergency landing Monday afternoon after reporting an engine problem.

Delta flight 923, a Boeing 717, landed without incident at Kansas City International Airport around 4:45 p.m. Monday, but was greeted on the runway by Kansas City, Mo. Fire Department crews.

Video from 41 Action News SKYTRACKER shows crews sprayed some sort of liquid on at least one of the rear-mounted engines.

"The pilot and staff did a wonderful job making sure we were safe," said David Lambert, who was on the flight.

An airport spokesman said 117 people were on board the flight. No injuries were immediately reported.
