A Delta Airlines Boeing 767 was forced to make an emergency return to New York City’s John F Kennedy International Airport when its emergency exit slide fell off during takeoff.

“After the aircraft had safely landed and proceeded to a gate, it was observed that the emergency slide had separated from the aircraft,” a Delta spokesperson said.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, Delta Flight 520 from New York to Los Angeles returned safely to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York around 8:35 a.m. local time on Friday, April 26, after the crew reported a vibration.

The plane spent approximately 33 minutes in the air.

The FAA will investigate the incident that resulted in the emergency return of the flight.

Delta Airlines’ spokesman indicated that the business is fully supporting retrieval efforts and will fully cooperate in investigations.
