PORTLAND -- American Airlines flight 2040 from PDX to Dallas-Fort Worth returned to Portland shortly after takeoff with an engine compressor problem.

The flight departed about 6 a.m. and safely landed about 6:25 a.m., surrounded by Port of Portland crash trucks, said Port spokesman Steve Johnson.

The MD 80 sat on the tarmac for a bit, then taxied to the terminal under its own power.

The airline reported that 135 people were on board. There were no injuries.
