Seventy passengers have finally arrived at their destination hours late after an aircraft emergency Wednesday night.

The flight left Denver and was on the way to Atlanta when a maintenance problem forced it to land in Pueblo. The passengers were told to brace for a hard landing, but 11 News learned it landed okay. No one was hurt.

A replacement plane from Denver arrived in Pueblo at about 10:30 Wednesday night. The passengers landed in Atlanta around 4 a.m.

The plane was a Shuttle America operated by United Express. There's no word yet on what caused the maintenance issues.
