April 8, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
An American Airlines flight made an unscheduled landing at Los Angeles International Airport Wednesday because of a possible mechanic problem.The Boeing 767 was flying nonstop from Dallas-Fort Worth to Honolulu, Hawaii, with 216 people on board, when a warning light signaled a hydraulic leak. The pilot did not declare an emergency, but diverted to Los Angeles as a precaution.

The plane landed safely at LAX, and the passengers were eventually put on another American flight to Hawaii.

The airline is investigating to see if there was, in fact, a leak or if it was a problem with the warning light.
