A Jet America DC-9 bound for Dallas returned to Long Beach Airport shortly after takeoff when the pilot noticed an oil leak and shut down one of the engines, a spokesman said. The twin-engine plane carrying 147 passengers landed safely and no one was injured. "The pilot felt he didn't have enough oil to make it on a 2 1/2-hour flight to Dallas," said John Rhodes, vice president of operations for Jet America.
