The United Airlines flight, a Bombardier CRJ 200 2-engine regional jet, left Dulles International Airport late Monday morning and was on its way to Hancock International Airport when it developed engine trouble, according to Elmira Corning Regional Airport Manager Thomas Freeman.

The plane, carrying nearly 50 passengers, was crossing over northern Pennsylvania when it started having problems, and touched down at the Big Flats airfield without incident, Freeman said.
