MINOT, N.D. (AP) -- A Seattle-bound JetBlue flight with 126 passengers had to make an emergency landing in Minot after the pilot detected an "electrical odor" onboard.

Flight 597 landed at Minot International Airport around 9:50 a.m. Wednesday.

JetBlue spokeswoman Sharon Jones says the pilot diverted the plane out of precaution. The flight originated in Boston.

City spokesman Bob Lindee says Minot's airport activated its emergency plan when the pilot advised officials of the unscheduled landing.

The plane took off after several hours and was expected to land in Seattle early afternoon Pacific Daylight Time.
