Delta flight makes emergency landing at JFK, skids onto grass

A Delta flight from Atlanta to LaGuardia made an emergency landing at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport Wednesday night, rolling off a taxiway and into a grassy area.

WABC-TV reports that Flight 886 was diverted as a precaution to JFK after a warning light in the cockpit indicated a possible problem with the plane's hydraulic system.

Federal Aviation Administration officials tell the station the plane landed at around 9 p.m. but skidded off the taxiway and into a grassy area while taxiing to the terminal.

None of the 118 passengers and 5 crew members aboard the McDonnell Douglas MD 88 were injured, the report said. An FAA investigation into the incident is ongoing.
