Jet Makes Emergency Landing in Scotland

Jet Makes Emergency Landing in Scotland

LONDON -- A United Airlines jet flying from Frankfurt, Germany to Washington D.C. made an emergency landing at a Scottish airport after a fire alert, an airport spokesman said Monday.

The Boeing 777 carrying some 270 passengers landed around 10:30 p.m. Sunday at Glasgow airport after reporting a fire on board, said Malcolm Robertson. There were no reports of injuries.

The airline later said there was no fire on board only haze apparently arising from overheated metal at the plane's rear.
