Cleveland-bound plane returns to airport due to smoke smell

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Officials say a plane bound for Cleveland early Saturday returned to Philadelphia International Airport after a report of a smell of smoke onboard.

Airport spokeswoman Victoria Lupica tells The Associated Press that a United Airlines flight bound for Cleveland reported a smell of smoke shortly after takeoff and returned to the airport just before 6:30 a.m.

Lupica says the passengers were taken off the plane out of an abundance of caution. She says no smoke or fire was found on the plane.

She says the flight could continue on to Cleveland once the plane is cleared.
