Flight makes emergency landing in Amarillo

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - A plane carrying more than one hundred passengers had to make an emergency stop in Amarillo this morning.

Crews on board an American Airlines flight reportedly smelled smoke in the cockpit of the plane and decided to make an emergency landing to check things out.

The plane, carrying 112 passengers and five crew members from Dallas to Albuquerque, landed safely at Rick Husband International Airport just after 11:00 this morning.

The passengers were taken to their destination on a different plane this afternoon.
