Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez Praises Pilots After Emergency Landing

Atlanta Falcons and future Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez had an interesting return flight to Los Angeles on Thursday night.

Delta flight 125 took off from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, but had to make an emergency landing after an indicator light warned of a possible problem with one of the engines. Gonzalez was apparently on that flight.

"Long day but SO glad to be home!! We took off and the right engine went out. Had to make an emergency landing. Its a good day to be alive!!", a relieved Gonzalez tweeted from California.

"Great job to the four pilots that landed the plane. You guys kept everyone calm", Gonzalez added an hour later.

D. Orlando Ledbetter has an article in today's Atlanta Journal-Constitution about Gonzalez's efforts to promote all-natural supplements.
