SEATTLE (AP) -- A U.S. Airways flight from Anchorage, Alaska, to Phoenix has made an emergency landing at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport after one of its engines went out.

Airport spokesman Perry Cooper says the Airbus A319 landed safely and none of the 130 people aboard was injured when Flight 149 was diverted to Sea-Tac at about 5:45 a.m. Friday.

U.S. Airways spokeswoman Valerie Wunder says a mechanical problem led to the engine shutdown. She says the passengers were placed on another plane to continue the flight to Phoenix.
