Plane makes emergency landing at PHL
  PHILADELPHIA (AP) A US Airways plane was forced to shut down one of its two engines and make an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport on Sunday, authorities said. Flight 4455, a twin-engine turboprop, declared an emergency about 20 minutes after taking off from the Philadelphia airport bound for Baltimore-Washington International Airport, US Airways spokesman Carlo Bertolini said.

   "One of the engines was shut down," he said.

   The plane, carrying 48 passengers and three crewmembers, returned to Philadelphia, landed at about 4:50 p.m. and was towed to the gate, Bertolini said. No one was injured, Bertolini and airport spokesman Mark Pesce said.
