A United Airlines passenger jet traveling from New Jersey to California was forced to make an emergency landing in Lincoln.

An electrical problem and smoke in the cockpit forced the passenger jet to land on Monday. The United 757 flight was flying from Newark to Los Angeles with 220 people on board.

Lincoln Fire and Rescue says no one was hurt, and the plane made it safely to the terminal.

Lincoln Airport officials say another plane will be sent to Lincoln, or a mechanical crew will try to repair the plane by later this afternoon.
