KETCHIKAN - For the second time in a week, an Alaska Airlines jet had to make an emergency landing at Ketchikan International Airport.
Alaska Airlines Flight 64 made an emergency landing Saturday night.
A jet flying the same route Jan. 20 made an emergency landing at Ketchikan due to flap problems.
On the flight Saturday, the pilot declared a mechanical emergency after departing Wrangell.
Emergency personnel stood by and watched as the jet safely touched down about 8 p.m.
An Alaska Airlines official could not immediately say how many people were on board or whether it was the same jet.
Flight 64 originates in Anchorage and flies to Seattle with stops in Juneau, Petersburg, Wrangell and Ketchikan.
