MORRISVILLE, N.C. — A plane made an emergency landing Wednesday morning while en route to Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

According to WTVD, USAir flight #3583 departed from Ronald Reagen Washington National Airport at 6:54 a.m.

The plane’s “windshield heat sensor indicated a problem,” prompting a turnaround, WTVD reports.

The plane, which was originally scheduled to land at RDU at 7:30 a.m., landed back at DCA at 7:19 a.m.

USAir officials tell WTVD the windshield heat sensor turned out to be “faulty,” the station reports.
