Delta Plane Makes Emergency Landing in SC

A Delta Air Lines plane has made an emergency landing at a South Carolina airport after reports of smoke in the cockpit.

Delta spokesman Kent Landers says the MD88 landed safely at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport just before 5 p.m. Thursday.

Landers says the flight from Washington's Dulles International Airport to Atlanta was diverted after crew members reported the smoke.

Landers says the plane blew several tires when it landed but the 145 passengers and crew members got off the plane safely.

It's not known what caused the problem.

Landers says the airline will conduct an investigation.

He says Delta will get the passengers to Atlanta on other flights.
