Airliner lands safely at Sea-Tac airport after scare

The Associated Press

SEATAC — A Delta Air Lines spokesman says the captain of a flight from San Diego to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport declared an emergency Monday afternoon after a cockpit indicator suggested a potential brake issue.

Spokesman Trebor Banstetter said Flight 5811, operated by Delta Connection carrier Compass Airlines, landed without incident.

The spokesman didn’t have a total passenger count but said the Embraer 175 has 76 seats. The aircraft was being checked out late Monday.

Airport spokesman Perry Cooper said  Sea-Tac was ready with emergency equipment if needed.
