Officials say a United Express plane with a possible open door and steering problems made an emergency landing in Vermont shortly after taking off for Washington, D.C.

The plane, carrying 43 people, landed at the Burlington International Airport at 6:45 Monday morning.

The Airport Operations Office says a light in the cockpit showed a passenger door was open and steering problems were reported. A Phase 5 emergency was declared, in which fire, police and ambulance crews from more than a dozen agencies converge on the airport. The airline is investigating the emergency. The aircraft was operated by Atlantic Southeast Airlines.
