A United flight diverts to Fort Worth due to an emergency in the cockpit

Fort Worth - United Airlines Flight 4390 diverted to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport due to a problem in the cockpit screens, according to an airline representative.

Flight 4390, a Bombardier CRJ-200ER, departed from Knoxville, Tennessee, for Houston, Texas on Thursday night, April 4. The aircraft lost a pair of cockpit screens in mid-flight.

Pilots of the United flight decided to divert to Fort Worth International Airport for an emergency landing.

The pilot announced that they would lose them all if they kept flying because tremendous heat behind those screens and there was not enough cooling.

The aircraft registered N909EV landed safely at Fort Worth and passengers were rebooked on a different flight for Houston, Texas.

"If we had continued, eventually, I'd be flying blind," said the captain after landing.

"So, that's why we are in Dallas right now. It is unlikely this aircraft is going anywhere tonight," he continued.
