Plane makes emergency landing at airport

FORT WAYNE – A Fort Wayne International Airport official says a Chicago-bound Chautauqua Airlines flight made an emergency landing at the airport after its crew smelled a burning odor in the cockpit.

Director of airports Scott Hinderman said the flight carrying 47 passengers was headed from Knoxville, Tenn., to Chicago when it was diverted to Fort Wayne International Airport.

Hinderman said the burning aroma had dissipated by the time the flight landed about 9 a.m. Monday.

He said mechanics were evaluating the aircraft, which remained at the airport about 1 p.m.
