Hillary Clinton was headed for the Soviet Union on a nine-day trip to encourage economic development in the region.
The plane was a Boeing 707 used as Air Force One dating back to the Nixon administration.
The light came on signaling problems with the plane's engine, then the pilot began dumping fuel a few minutes after takeoff.
