NORTHWEST AIRLINES DC-9 LANDS WITHOUT INCIDENT

A Northwest Airlines DC-9 jet en route from Albany to Detroit was diverted to Greater Buffalo International Airport Monday morning after engine trouble, authorities said.

Flight 1521, with 85 people aboard, was in the air less than 30 minutes when a warning light indicated low oil pressure in the right engine, said Harry Spector of the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority.

The pilot, following standard procedures, shut down the engine and notified the airport tower of its approach, Spector said. Airport emergency crews were put on stand-by. The plane landed without incident.
