Denver-bound United flight diverted to Wichita

WICHITA, Kan. - A United Airlines commuter flight bound for Denver has been diverted to an airport in Wichita because of a mechanical problem with one of the wings on the aircraft.

Airport officials say the Embraer 145 jet landed safely Monday night at Mid-Continent Airport after the pilot reported problems with a part that controls the plane's ability to turn.

The flight, with 39 passengers aboard, took off from Shreveport, La. The pilot first reported problems about 50 miles from the airport.

Police, fire and rescue personnel were on hand but the plane landed without problems and no injuries were reported.
