Allegiant Jet Makes Emergency Landing At St. Pete Airport


An Allegiant jet had to return to the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Airport minutes after taking off this afternoon.

Officials say Flight 866 pilots had trouble pressurizing the cabin as they ascended for their flight to Pittsburgh, so they made an emergency landing.

Just last week, another Allegiant jet had to turn around and come back to the Clearwater/St. Pete airport after smoke started filling the cabin.
