NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A United Airlines jetliner bound for Boston returned to the gate at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport after reports of smoke coming from an engine.

United spokeswoman Mary Clark says Flight 1550, carrying 147 passengers and crew, was preparing for takeoff Tuesday.

The Boeing 737 was removed from service for a maintenance inspection and United substituted another aircraft for the flight to Boston.
