Jet bound for Phoenix makes emergency landing in Kentucky

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A US Airways flight from Newark, N.J. had to make an emergency landing in Louisville, Ky.

Airline spokesman Phil Gee says Flight 688 was headed to Phoenix with 137 passengers and five crew members aboard when one of the plane's two engines quit last night.

Gee says the plane could have operated on one engine, but the pilot wanted to play it safe.

The plane landed safely and there were no injuries.

Gee says passengers spent the night in Louisville and are to fly out late this morning.
