Delta Jet Makes Emergency Landing in SC

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- A Delta Air Lines plane carrying 259 passengers has landed safely in South Carolina after the pilot smelled smoke in the cockpit.

Larry Holcombe, manager of Greenville-Spartanburg Airport, says Flight 1819 was flying from Raleigh, N.C., to Atlanta when the pilot landed without incident Wednesday afternoon.

Holcombe says that the problem appears to be a malfunction in an air conditioning vent, but that there appeared to be no fire.

Delta spokeswoman Betsy Talton says one woman aboard the Boeing 767 complained of minor burns but refused treatment.

Talton says Delta is inspecting the plane and does not know when it will be back in service.
