Tulsa, OK – Continental Express jet makes emergency landing

TULSA, Okla. (AP) A Continental Express jet with 53 people on board has made an emergency landing at Tulsa International Airport.

Flight 2916 from Houston to Omaha, Neb., diverted just after 9:30 a.m. Monday after the crew said they were having a "pressurization problem."

The Tulsa Fire Department and ambulances were called to the scene but there are no reports of injury.

A spokesman for ExpressJet Airlines did not immediately return a phone call for comment but the company's Web site indicated the flight had not resumed as of early Monday afternoon.
