    Nov 9, 2013- A Spirit Airlines plane had to return to O'Hare International Airport soon after takeoff when part of the housing for one of its engines fell off, officials said.

    No one was injured when the cowling for the right engine on Flight 409, headed for Fort Lauderdale, Fla., became detached and the flight crew had to return to O'Hare a little after 5:30 a.m., said Misty Pinson, spokeswoman for the Florida-based airline.
