PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say two commercial flights were diverted to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport within 45 minutes of each other.

A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman says both planes landed without incident Wednesday afternoon.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says American Airlines flight 510 was headed for Chicago but returned to Phoenix after an indicator light began to flash.

Gregor says that flight landed at 2:30 p.m. at Sky Harbor and the cause of the flashing indicator light still is unknown.

He says Delta Airlines flight 2267 was headed from San Diego to Atlanta and landed at Sky Harbor around 3:15 p.m. because of a mechanical issue.

Additional details aren't immediately available.
