SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The smell of smoke prompted a chartered passenger jet to make an emergency landing Thursday in Spokane.
The Spokesman-Review reports ( http://is.gd/pUIHlv) that no fire was found but the 105 passengers and five crew members were evacuated from the Boeing 737-900 as a precaution.
Spokane International Airport spokesman Todd Woodard says the plane was bound for Seattle from Minneapolis. It was operated by Minnesota-based Sun Country Airlines.
