Cabin smoke forces emergency landing in Alabama; no injuries

0

A commercial airline flight bound for Dallas with more than 80 people on board had to return to an Alabama airport because of smoke in the passenger cabin.

A spokeswoman for Birmingham’s airport, Toni Herrera-Bast, say an American Airlines flight operated by a regional carrier departed Tuesday morning but to turn around after the pilot reported smoke.

The plane returned to the airport at 6:40 a.m. after only 11 minutes in the air. Passengers got off the aircraft on the tarmac before being taken inside the terminal.

No injuries are being reported.

The twin-engine Bombardier CRJ-900 was carrying 79 passengers and four crew members.
