A Delta Airlines plane had to make an emergency landing in southern California Tuesday night after an engine had to be shutdown.

The FAA said that the Boeing 757 was about one-hundred miles east of Ontario, Calif., when the pilots experienced a strange engine vibration at about thirty-three thousand feet, prompting the pilots to shutdown the engines.

The cause of the vibration is under investigation, but aerial television footage shows damage to the engine.

Delta flight 1973 was headed to Ontario from Atlanta, GA with 190 people on board.
