Delta Flight From Manchester, NH Makes Emergency Landing At Logan Airport
BOSTON (CBS) – A Delta Airlines flight made an emergency landing at Logan Airport Friday morning.
Flight 1941 left Manchester, New Hampshire at 7:10 a.m. heading for Atlanta, when it was forced to land at 7:44 a.m. at Logan because of a report of fumes on board, according to Massport.
144 passengers and 5 crew members were on the MD-88 jet. No one was hurt.
“Right when we took off, a smell of something burning appeared. But after 10 mins seem to go away. For safety reasons (of course) they redirected us to Boston to investigate the problem.” passenger Jade Jamros of Salem told WBZ-TV via Twitter.
Massport spokesman Richard Walsh said the flight “landed without incident.”
Passengers were taken from the plane on the taxiway to the terminal in buses.
The jet was later towed away for an inspection and passengers were re-booked on new flights.
The FAA says it is investigating the incident.
