Delta plane has flat tire after safe landing in Los Angeles

Authorities say a Delta Airlines jetliner had a flat tire after landing safely at Los Angeles International Airport following a flight from Atlanta.

Airport police officer Rob Pedregon says the pilot of Flight 2355 reported a possible wheel problem before landing around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the flat tire was reported after the Boeing 757 was on the ground.

Pedregon says passengers were taken by bus to the gate. The aircraft was towed in for inspection and maintenance.

A call seeking additional details from Delta was not immediately returned.
