LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas An American Airlines flight that originated at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport made an unexpected landing in Little Rock Monday evening.

Officials at Little Rock National Airport told KARK that Flight 1366 landed around 5:30 after being diverted from its original destination of Memphis, Tennessee and 47 minutes after taking off from D/FW.

Pilots made the decision to change the flight plan after a cockpit instrument indicated a problem with the oil level in one of the aircraft's two engines.

Airport officials said all 129 passengers and five crew members on board the MD-80 jet were safe.

American dispatched a second plane to take the passengers on to Memphis after a two-hour delay.

The airline sent mechanics from Tulsa to inspect the plane that landed in Little Rock.
