UPS Boeing 767 Makes An Emergency Landing in Rockford, For A Possible Engine Fire

Sources at the airport are reporting a UPS Boeing 767 (UPS102) had to make an emergency landing overnight in Rockford. 

A UPS Boeing 767 departed from the Rockford Airport (KRFD) at approx. 3:21 am and was headed for Alaska. 

During the flight, pilots were reporting a possible engine fire. 

The engine fire light came on during the flight, shortly after it departed the Rockford Airport.  

If there was a fire in the engine, it had extinguished itself before landing. 

The flight was at 28,000 feet, and over the Mississippi River area approx. 3:32 am, when it diverted back to the Rockford Airport.
Sources said it was “officially diverted” at approx. 3:35 am. 

The UPS pilots flew the UPS 767 aircraft back into the Rockford Airport for precaution. 

They landed safely on Runway 1 at approx.  3:55 am. 

Emergency personnel were on standby as the aircraft landed.
