PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) – A United Express flight from Denver to Atlanta landed safely Wednesday night after making an emergency landing in Pueblo.

The plane was carrying 68 passengers and crew members when it was forced to land because of mechanical problems.

Peter Kowalchuk, a spokesman for Shuttle America that operates the flight, said Thursday the passengers on Flight 3523 continued on to Atlanta on another Shuttle America aircraft.
