Boeing 737 lands safely after engine failure

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 jet bound for Burbank, Calif., was forced to return to San Jose International Airport where it made a smooth emergency landing yesterday after one of its two engines became disabled 20 minutes after takeoff, airline officials said.

The 51 passengers and five crew members aboard Flight 1478 were rattled about 10 a.m. by a loud boom and sudden turbulence that followed the engine failure, but suffered no injuries.
