GREENVILLE, S.C., Jan. 6 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Monday a plane he was on made a return-flight emergency landing in Greenville after passengers heard strange noises.

"Interesting day -- just made a return-flight emergency landing at GSP," Graham tweeted, Politico reported. "About 5 minutes into today's flight from Greenville to Washington, I and my other passengers noticed the engine making strange sound[s]."

The plane departed Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport at 2:42 p.m. and landed minutes later at the same airport, where fire trucks were waiting.

"Thank you the first responders at GSP and flight crew for the work you do," Graham said.
