Engine problems force Chicago-to-Vegas flight to land in Nebraska – NBC Chicago

A United Airlines flight from Chicago to Las Vegas made an unscheduled stopover in Nebraska on Saturday after the pilot reported engine trouble.

Mark Grant, a communications operator at Lincoln Airport, said 326 passengers and crew were on board the Boeing 777 when it took off from O’Hare International Airport.

After the plane lost the use of one of its engines about 112.65 kilometers west of Lincoln, the pilot turned back. Grant said the pilot landed the plane safely at Lincoln Airport at 11:41 a.m.

He said the passengers and crew were waiting for a replacement plane, which was due to arrive later in the afternoon and take them to Las Vegas.
