Flight from San Francisco International Airport diverted because of mechanical problem 

A New York City-bound flight was diverted an hour after it took off from San Francisco International Airport early this morning because of a mechanical problem, an airport duty manager said.

Virgin America Flight 28 left SFO around midnight. At 1 a.m., the Airbus A319 carrying 111 passengers was diverted to an airport in Grand Junction, Colo., San Francisco airport duty manager Nancie Parker said.

A mechanical issue required inspection, she said.

Passengers were taken to a nearby Grand Junction hotel, and alternate flight arrangements are being made, she said.
