Luggage Falls Out Of Plane

CHICAGO (AP) -- Several pieces of luggage are missing from a Delta Airlines flight that left Chicago's Midway Airport yesterday, and authorities say they apparently fell out somewhere over the Chicago area.

The Delta flight operated by Atlantic Southeast Airlines was forced to circle back to Midway shortly after takeoff because a cargo door was improperly secured and two bags fell out.

The Atlanta-bound flight, carrying 63 passengers, left Midway at 9:54 a.m. It made an emergency landing after the crew detected a cabin pressure problem.

After the plane landed, the crew determined that one of two cargo doors on the 70-seat regional jet had opened during the flight, allowing the bags to escape.

No one was hurt, and passengers were reassigned to another flight.
