WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 50-seat jet flying to Dallas was forced to land in Wichita after its windshield cracked.

No one was injured onboard the Embraer regional jet that took off from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Spokeswoman Valerie Wise says the plane was over Salina Monday morning when the pilot said he needed to make an emergency landing at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport.
