Plane makes emergency landing at PBIA

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating after an American Airlines flight made an emergency landing in West Palm Beach after the cockpit filled with smoke.

The flight left from Puerto Rico and was heading to Philadelphia Wednesday night when it was forced to land at Palm Beach International Airport.

Several passengers were transported to the hospital, but the injuries were not considered life threatening.

American Airlines spokeswoman Mary Frances Fagan says a passenger and the first officer on the plane were taken to the hospital. Later, the captain and three flight attendants were also taken to the hospital.
