The Pittsburgh Steelers’ charter plane from Las Vegas had to make an emergency landing in Kansas City, Missouri, early Monday morning according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
A Steelers spokesperson posted on social media that everyone on the plane is safe and that the team is “making necessary plans to arrive back in Pittsburgh later today.”
According to KDKA in Pittsburgh, the plane landed at Kansas City International Airport at 3:55 AM CT because of oil pressure failure in one of the engines. Fire trucks were on scene inspecting the Airbus A330-900, per the report.
The Steelers improved their record to 2-1 with a victory over the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium. They will travel to Houston to take on the Texans in Week 4.
