CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A US Airways passenger jet traveling from Charlotte to Charleston, W.Va., has had to turn around and make an emergency landing.

The Charlotte Observer reports that an airline spokeswoman says the crew heard a "loud and unsettling noise" shortly after the plane departed at around 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

As a precaution, the plane turned around and landed at Charlotte/Douglas International Airport about an hour after it left.

The 44 passengers were then put on different flights.

It was unclear what caused the noise and the airline was investigating.
