POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — A United Airlines 737 flying from Seattle to Houston made an emergency landing in Idaho after an engine shut down.

Police say the airplane landed safely at the Pocatello Regional Airport just after 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

KPVI-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1cd40SZ ) the plane’s 147 passengers were waiting at the terminal for a replacement airplane to arrive, which was expected to happen at about 9:30 a.m.

Pocatello airport manager David Allen says an engine on the airplane shut down and Pocatello was the closest suitable airport to make an emergency landing.
