UPS Plane Makes Emergency Landing In Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The two crew members of a UPS cargo plane are safe after they were forced to make an emergency landing in Pittsburgh International Airport.

An airport spokeswoman says the pilot radioed air traffic controllers before dawn Friday saying a light had come on indicating either smoke or fire on board the jet. The plane landed at about 4:30 a.m.

The pilot and co-pilot were the only two on board. No fire has been reported.

The plane is being inspected at the Pittsburgh airport.
