(Omaha, NE)  --  A flight from Omaha to Newark, New Jersey, is forced to return to Eppley Airfield.  Officials say a United Airlines flight encountered a potential problem with its landing gear yesterday afternoon.  The aircraft circled the airport to burn fuel before landing safely shortly after 2:00 p.m.  No one was injured in the incident.  

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Officials say the new parking garage and rental car facility that will open soon at Omaha's Eppley Airfield will reshape the traffic flow for many travelers. It also will provide a technological assist to their searches for parking spaces.

What's being called the North Garage will offer 2,000 new spaces and shelter from the elements as people walk to and from the terminal. There will be electric-charging stations, sensors and a tracking system to analyze parking availability and electronic signs to point people to open stalls.
