TULSA, OK -- FAA says its flight computer system is working again.  Early Thursday morning, a computer problem caused widespread flight cancellations and delays nationwide. 

Tulsa International Airport says the FAA problem did not impact flights in and out of Tulsa earlier in the morning, but as the day progressed, several flights in and out of Atlanta were being delayed between 30 and 45 minutes. 

Earlier, the FAA said the problem was over processing of flight plan information. 

"We are investigating the cause of the problem," the agency said. "We are processing flight plans manually and expect some delays. We have radar coverage and communications with planes."

Flight plans are collected by the FAA for traffic nationwide at two centers, one in the Salt Lake City area and the other in the Atlanta area.
