The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating why a small plane was forced to make an emergency landing in a southwestern Illinois soybean field.
The White House said Monday a no-fly zone the U.S. government imposed over Ferguson, Missouri, for nearly two weeks in August should not have restricted helicopters for news organizations that wanted to operate in the area to cover violent protests there.
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said it was not a decision that originated with police.
The U.S. government agreed to a police request to restrict more than 37 square miles of airspace surrounding Ferguson, Missouri, for 12 days in August for safety, but audio recordings show that local authorities privately acknowledged the purpose was to keep away news helicopters during violent street protests.

A commercial airplane traveling from Boston to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Nebraska on Monday, officials said.
The airport director says there have been no reports of any shots fired at aircraft and the move is strictly a precaution.
Authorities say he was able to get out of the plane and call for help, before the plane caught fire and burned beyond recognition.
