JetBlue plane forced to make emergency landing in New Jersey

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A JetBlue plane was forced to make an emergency landing in New Jersey after its cockpit filled with smoke.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters says Flight 1443 was forced to declare an emergency and land at Atlantic City International Airport after taking off at 9 p.m. Wednesday from Newark Liberty International Airport.

The flight was bound for West Palm Beach, Florida. Passengers were stuck waiting at the airport until another plane arrived Thursday morning. It eventually arrived in Florida around 8:30 a.m.

No one was injured and an investigation continues.
