Delta plane makes emergency landing at Narita


A Delta passenger jet bound for Saipan made an emergency landing at Narita International Airport in Chiba Prefecture on Saturday after smoke in the cabin was reported, but no one was injured, an airport official said.

The Boeing 757-200 with 97 crew and passengers on board was forced to return to the airport near Tokyo Saturday morning after the smoke was “detected,” the official said.

The airport temporarily closed when the plane returned, and all the crew and passengers evacuated safely, he added.

Local media said airport engineers had so far found no damage in the cabin. Delta is investigating the incident.
