South Windsor (WTNH) - A plane flying out of Bradley International
Airport had to make an emergency landing shortly after it took off
Sunday morning because of smoke in the cockpit.

Southwest Airlines Flight 693, bound for Orlando, Fla., landed at
MacArthur Airport on Long Island at 7:55 a.m., said FAA spokesman Jim
Peters. He said there was smoke in the plane, a 737, but did not
specify where it originated from or what caused it.

There are no reports of injuries, but EMS and fire officials were on
the scene as a precaution.

Passengers will board another airplane and continue their trip to
Orlando, said Peters.

FAA inspectors are on the scene investigating what went wrong.
