SAN FRANCISCO — A US Airways flight from Phoenix to Hawaii has landed safely at San Francisco International Airport after the pilot declared an emergency because of smoke in the cockpit.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor states the Boeing 757 landed in San Francisco just after 5 p.m. Friday.
Airport spokesman Michael Brown states the plane landed “uneventfully” and taxied to the gate. No injuries were reported.
US Airways states the flight to Kahului was carrying 175 passengers and six crew members. Spokeswoman Liz Landau states the emergency was declared as a precaution.
The diverted passengers were to be put on another US Airways flight for their delayed trip to Hawaii.
