Last night at around 9 p.m. a charter flight carrying the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball team had to make an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport. The Delta charter Boeing 737 was flying from Kansas City to John Wayne Airport, but was diverted to LAX to land ahead of schedule, according to the Daily Breeze.Problems with the aircraft's hydraulic system are what prompted the emergency. The landing went off without a hitch, and the team took a charter bus to Angel Stadium

Angels manager Mike Scioscia told the TV news the incident and its ensuing hoopla was "Much ado about nothing really," noting that the "landing was smooth," at LAX. Players praised their pilot for making a great landing.
