IAD flight makes emergency landing
A United Airlines jet headed to California made an emergency landing in West Virginia after pilots reported smoke in the aircraft.
The Boeing 757 landed at Charleston's Yeager Airport about 9 a.m. Tuesday. No injuries were reported among the 178 passengers.
A United spokeswoman says Flight 229 was flying from Dulles International Airport to San Diego. It was diverted to Charleston when the pilots reported smoke the aircraft.
Airport spokesman Brian Belcher says United was to send a replacement aircraft to Charleston Tuesday afternoon to pick up the passengers and crew.
