    Delta flight 2604 was arriving from MSP and detected a possible hydraulic leak during its final decent into GRR a few miles from the airport. It declared an emergency as a precaution and landed without incident. A minor fluid leak was found dripping off the flaps on the right wing. GRR spokesperson might want to try again.
