      Jet makes unscheduled landing at Amarillo airport

      A jet was forced to divert to Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport Wednesday afternoon because of a pressurization issue in the cabin.

      According to Airport Deputy Director Steven Picou, United Express Flight 4423 landed at Amarillo's airport just after 1:30 p.m.

      Picou said airport officials had about seven minutes notice before the airliner landed.

      Officials did not know exactly what caused the pressurization issue of the cabin.

      45 people were aboard the aircraft when it landed. No one was injured.
