GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Rosyln Weston, spokeswoman for Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, confirmed to FOX Carolina a United Flight headed to Dulles International Airport made an emergency landing shortly after takeoff Monday afternoon.

Weston said the plane took off at 2:37 p.m. and shortly thereafter the pilot reported there was a problem. The decision was made to turn around and make an emergency landing. The plane landed safely at 3:06 p.m. and all 40 passengers on board are OK.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham confirmed on Twitter he was on the flight. He tweeted "About 5 minutes into today's flight from Greenville to Washington, I and my other passengers noticed the engine making strange sound."

Weston said an oil indicator light was on but there's no official word on what the exact issue was with the plane. They are currently investigating.

Miss Lindsey ought to be thanking her lucky stars that her good friend Mc Lame wasn’t the pilot. They’d have been doomed for sure.

Flying’s dangerous, he should just get a job where he doesn’t have to travel.

Well it seems they may have been low on oil, they had a Dip Stick on board. The pilots should have sent him out on the left wing to check the oil.

My older truck missed a couple of times the other day. For some reason the Indy Star didn’t seem interested in the story.

Did he leave behind the right wing of his plane only to discover he wasn't able to go anywhere without it?

Did it back fire? If there were cops near by that could have turned out bad.

It’s too bad the pilots didn’t have to lighten the load a couple of hundred pounds to make it back.

SC people will come out for an emergency landing to make sure Lindsey gets another term to speak for them.

That last time he did finally manage to get himself shot down, along with an all expense paid stay at the Hanoi Hilton. I suppose if the Navy has Top Guns, it would follow they’d have a Bottom Gun, too. That would be John.
