SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A United Airlines flight from Vancouver has landed safely in San Francisco International Airport after declaring an emergency due to a mechanical problem.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregory says the Airbus A319 landed around 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

He says the pilot had declared an emergency due to a hydraulic issue.
