SAS aircraft makes emergency landing in US

Emergency landing in US after cockpit fills up with smoke

An Airbus 330 operated by Scandinavian Airlines was quickly diverted to Bangor International Airport in Maine, USA, after the cockpit filled with smoke. The plane had 230 passengers and 12 crew members on board. It was part-way into a flight from Newark to Copenhagen when it was diverted to Bangor where it landed safely at 19:30 local time on Wednesday.
All passengers and crew were checked for smoke inhalation, but no injuries were reported, according to Tony Caruso, the airport’s interim director. Caruso told the Bangor Daily News that the flight was then cancelled and that airport officials helped the passengers find accommodation while further transport was arranged.
