A 757 jet has made an emergency landing in Mobile.
The Mobile Airport Authority tells News 5 the cargo jet made a distress call requesting clearance for an emergency landing. Marc Pelham says the airplane reported engine failure, but was able to land safely at Mobile Regional.

News 5's Bill Riales is on the scene. He is reporting the plane was being refurbished and had been undergoing a test flight when engine failure occured.

Pelham says there were no injuries and the emergency landing did not affect commercial air traffic.

The air emergency comes just 15 hours after a small plane crashed near Brookley Field in Downtown Mobile.

Anyway, it doesn't list any airline, but it does say a cargo plane, so what airline or cargoline is it? Anyone else have any other info?

It is possible that this airplane could have been from Dothan, AL. That would be my first guess.
Change is: one airline, six continents!
