ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- A US Airways flight from Tampa, Fla., to Phoenix made a precautionary landing in Albuquerque, N.M., Sunday morning after the pilots reported a crack in the plane's windshield.
 
Airline spokesman Davien Anderson says the Airbus A319 did not lose cabin pressure and the landing was routine. The pilots did not declare an emergency.
 
US Airways Flight 265 was carrying 119 passengers and took off just after 7:30 a.m. Eastern time with a planned arrival at about 9 a.m. MST in Phoenix.
 
Anderson says US Airways sent another plane to bring the passengers to Phoenix.
