Delta flight from East Tennessee lands safely after report of smoke

CINCINNATI (AP) -- A Delta Connection flight from Chattanooga, Tenn., landed safely in Ohio after the smell of smoke was reported in the cockpit and cabin.

The Tuesday morning flight operated by Chautauqua Airlines carried 33 passengers and three crew members. It landed safely around in Cincinnati at 7 a.m., and no one was hurt.

A Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport spokesman says an engine on the plane overheated.

Chautauqua says while there was no actual smoke or fire, the plane will undergo a thorough inspection.
