Passengers on board a Southwest airlines flight from Nashville had a bit of a scare overnight when their flight was diverted to another airport. 

Flight 1118 from Nashville to Dallas Love Field had to divert to DFW when the plane had some trouble. 

The airline said a cockpit instrument indicated a flap might not have fully extended, which meant the plane may have landed at a higher speed. 

Out of an abundance of caution, the pilot went to DFW, where there was a longer runway available. 

No one was hurt.
