A United Airlines plane heading to Los Angeles from Chicago was diverted to Wichita, Kan. after an emergency slide inflated in the aircraft during the flight.
United Airlines flight 1463 landed at Mid-Continent Airport just after 10:30 p.m. local time on Sunday.
Initial reports that a passenger tried to open a door during the flight were false. The FAA spokesman said it is “impossible to open a door at that altitude.”
According to FlightAware.com, the plane was flying at 38,000 ft. at 10:05 p.m and dropped to 11,000 ft. in 12 minutes due to a loss in cabin pressure.
