    UPS 747 that declared emergency lands safely - Courier-Journal

    A United Parcel Service Boeing 747 landed safely at Louisville International Airport around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday after the pilot declared an emergency 50 minutes earlier.

    About 20 minutes after taking off from Louisville International Airport at 5:18 p.m., the pilot heard an odd noise and a series of warning lights indicating system failures went off in the cockpit, said Mike Mangeot, a spokesman for UPS Airlines.

    Out of caution, the pilot turned back to Louisville from the plane's scheduled destination of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Mangeot said.
