El Al Plane Carrying 300 Passengers Makes Emergency Landing in Montana

(JTA) — An El Al flight with nearly 300 people on board made an emergency landing in Billings, Montana.

Warning lights showed that there was a fire in the right engine, the Billings Gazette reported Sunday. The passengers had to exit using a landing ladder, according to the newspaper, as the Boeing 777 was too large to park at the terminal.

A spare plane was being sent from New Jersey to allow the passengers to finish their journey, which started in Tel Aviv.
