DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Delta Air Lines says a flight bound for Atlanta made a quick return to a southwest Ohio airport because of a possible engine issue.

The Atlanta-based airline says Flight 2392 took off from Dayton International Airport on Tuesday morning and returned shortly afterward because of an indication that one of the MD-90's two engines was getting too warm. A statement says the flight returned "out of an abundance of caution."
