FORT MYERS, Fla. – A Jetblue plane is forced to make an emergency landing at Southwest Florida International Airport.

We're told the New Jersey-bound plane had engine problems shortly after takeoff from RSW. 

Jetblue tells us it was because of a bird strike.  The plane returned to the airport around 12:20pm.

None of the 144 people on board were hurt.  A maintenance crew is currently inspecting the plane.
