SAN DIEGO – A Horizon Air dual-propeller commuter plane with equipment trouble just made a safe landing at Lindbergh Field.

Flight 2468 from San Diego was en route to Santa Rosa at 10:45 a.m. when a caution light came on, a spokesperson for the airline told FOX 5. In order to avoid an overweight landing, the pilots circled the airplane for about 20 minutes to burn fuel.

The plane landed safely around 11:30 a.m. and passengers went to the gate, the spokesperson said.  They will be placed on a replacement flight scheduled to take off at 2:30 p.m.

It’s unclear what type of “system issue” prompted the aircraft, which had taken off from the bayside airport.

A second flight — this time a Southwest Airlines plane from Las Vegas to San Diego — reportedly had hydraulic problems when it landed at Lindbergh Field. It landed safely around 1:15 p.m.
