MADRID (AP) — A Delta Air Lines passenger jet that experienced a hydraulics problem after taking off from Madrid has returned and made an emergency landing. No one was injured.

Delta spokesman Morgan Durrant says tires on the main landing gear of New York-bound plane deflated as it landed but that the plane came to a rest safely.

Buses were dispatched to the plane to take the 200 passengers and 11 crew members to a terminal.

Durrant says he cannot comment in more detail on the hydraulics problem with the Boeing 767-300ER because it is under investigation. The plane was being examined by technicians, and passengers were being rescheduled on other flights.
