OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Officials say a commercial airplane traveling from Boston to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Nebraska.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the Virgin America flight made the unscheduled landing Monday morning at Omaha's Eppley Airfield. The plane landed safely and no injuries were reported.

The agency says the flight crew requested a diversion following a medical emergency on board, but additional information has not been released. Omaha television station KETV reports (http://bit.ly/1Du8GSQ ) a passenger from the plane was later taken to the airport's police office.

The U.S. Attorney's Office tells the station that a passenger was taken to the hospital for observation. Officials did not provide more details.
