AllegiantAllegiant Air flight 426 had to make an emergency landing at Hector International Airport, Fargo, North Dakota, on July 21.

The airport was closed for the US Navy’s Blue Angels’ rehearsals, when the pilot requested an emergency landing due to dangerously low fuel level.

The plane landed safely and all 114 passengers and 6 crew members aboard remained unhurt.

It is believed that the Boeing MD-80, en-route from Las Vegas was scheduled to land at the airport 12 minutes before it was closed, however, the flight’s take off was delayed.

The incident is being investigated.
