WARWICK, R.I. -- A gas leak forced a plane to turn around shortly after it took off from T.F. Green Airport on Wednesday.

A representative from the Federal Aviation Administration told NBC 10 that Mesaba Flight 3498 called the tower saying they had been leaking fuel.

Pilots noticed the problem while they were over Putnam, Conn., the representative said. The plane was on its way to Minneapolis.

The plane landed less than 10 minutes later back at the airport. About 70 people were aboard the plane.

The representative said crews will perform an inspection of the plane.

Perhaps the leak has something to do with the incredible amount of "suck" coming from the plane...

Maybe it's contagious seeing as the Continental 737 that was sitting in DTW today with the warning open fuel tank signs displayed on it..... Naw I'd still take US over Canadian built...

You spent $10 just to post that?

Money well spent. No wonder why there are so many failed mortgages.
Most people on here were not stupid enough to spend 10.00 on this site. But hey, at least you got a witty post in.
