A Delta Air Lines flight bound for Los Angeles has returned to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport after an engine indicator line came on minutes after takeoff.

Delta spokeswoman Betsy Talton said the light came on shortly after Flight 941 took off at 11:10 a.m. Friday. She says the pilot shut down one of the plane's engines as a precaution and returned to the airport.

Talton says the Boeing 767-300 holds 262 passengers. She did not know how many people were on board.

The plane returned safely. Passengers were scheduled to depart Atlanta on another plane at 1:50 p.m.
