Delta jet makes emergency landing at JFK in New York

A Delta Air Lines flight to Russia made an emergency landing Sunday evening after encountering an engine problem shortly after takeoff from New York, the Federal Aviation Administration reported.

Delta Air Lines Flight 30 returned to John F. Kennedy International
Airport at 5:49 p.m. ET, about 50 minutes after takeoff. The Moscow-bound
Boeing 767 was forced to turn back after its crew reported a problem with its
left engine, FAA spokeswoman Holly Baker said.
