United Airlines makes emergency landing in Idaho

POCATELLO, Idaho  — A United Airlines 737 flying from Seattle to Houston made an emergency landing in Idaho after one of its two engines apparently shut down.

Police say the airplane landed safely at the Pocatello Regional Airport just after 2:50 a.m. today.

The airline said the plane’s 116 passengers were waiting at the terminal for a replacement airplane to arrive, which was expected to happen early today. The plane also had six crew members.

Pocatello airport manager David Allen tells KPVI-TV that an engine on the airplane shut down and Pocatello was the closest suitable airport to make an emergency landing.

United Airlines spokeswoman Jennifer Dohm sent an email to The Associated Press saying the plane was diverted to Pocatello due to “an issue with an engine” that maintenance workers were reviewing.
