Delta flight with stuck landing gear arrives safely at LAX

A Delta Air Lines flight from San Diego with 267 people aboard landed safely at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday after its landing gear became stuck in the down position, authorities said.

Federal Aviation Administration officials said Flight 1692 was diverted to LAX when its landing gear failed to retract after its departure from San Diego International Airport.

The Boeing 767, which was on its way to Atlanta, landed without incident about 12:20 p.m.  Other arrangements were made to get the passengers to their destination.
