The article I saw didn't say anything about an engine shutting down.
YORK, Oct 25 (Reuters) - A Continental Airlines plane flying to the United States from Britain safely made an emergency landing in Iceland on Wednesday, an airline official said.
A faulty gauge caused Continental Flight 29 to land as a precautionary measure, Continental (CAL.N: Quote, Profile, Research) spokeswoman Julie King said.
"There was a gauge that indicated there was an issue with one of the engines and we landed as a precautionary measure," she said. "Maintenance checked it out and we are in the process of refueling the aircraft."
The Boeing 757-200 departed from Gatwick Airport and was scheduled to land at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey before being diverted to Keflavik Airport in Iceland.
All 166 passengers and eight crew members were safe, King said.
