GREER, SC (WYFF) -

A commercial flight with 40 people on board, including Sen. Lindsey Graham, was forced to return to Greenville-Spartanburg Airport when an oil indicator light came on, according to an airport spokeswoman.

The United Airlines flight left GSP at 2:37 p.m. headed to Dulles Airport, according to Rosylin Weston.

Weston said the plane landed at GSP safely a short time later.

Just after 4 p.m., Graham tweeted: "About 5 minutes into today's flight from Greenville to Washington, I and my other passengers noticed the engine making strange sound."

The GSP spokeswoman did not mention an engine sound, only the warning light.
