Hail Was Powerful Enough To Force Delta Jet’s Emergency Landing

The Federal Aviation Administration says a Delta Airlines flight that originated from Boston made an emergency landing in Denver because hail damaged the plane. FAA spokesman Ian McGregor tells The Denver Post that the plane landed safely at Denver International Airport at 8:42 p.m. Friday. The flight's destination was Salt Lake City International Airport. McGregor says hail pelted the plane, damaged its nose cone and cracked its windshield.
