WINDSOR LOCKS, CT (WFSB) -

A 10-seat airplane made an emergency landing at Bradley International Airport on Wednesday morning. 

A Cape Air Cessna 402 aircraft was flying from Lebanon, New Hampshire to White Plains, New York before the emergency landing at 10:15 a.m., according to Alisa D. Sisic, M.S., who is the Marketing and Communications Coordinator/PIO for Bradley Airport.

The pilot noticed a problem with a gauge and decided to divert the plane to Bradley Airport, Sisic said. 

There were seven passengers and two crew members on the plane. Sisic said the passengers were taken to their destination by car. 

The airport was temporary closed for the emergency landing, but Sisic said it was reopened by noon. The plane remains grounded at Bradley International Airport. 

Wednesday’s emergency landing is the second one at Bradley this week. On Monday, a Southwest flight 776, which was heading to Orlando from Providence, was diverted to Bradley Airport.
