A twin-engine Delta jet flying from Tampa to Cincinnati, Ohio, was diverted to Tallahassee Regional Airport this morning after experiencing engine trouble.

The MD-88 jet landed safely about 9:25 a.m. with one engine shut down, said Jim Durwin, superintendent of airport operations.

Seventy-eight people were on board, including the flight crew, Durwin said.

Delta is sending another flight into Tallahassee to pick up the passengers and take them to Cincinnati, Durwin said. The flight is expected about 10:50 a.m.
