TUCSON - A plane that was en route from Phoenix to Cabo, San Lucas, Mexico had to make an emergency stop in Tucson when the crew received an instrument reading indicting that there was smoke in the cockpit.
Tucson International Airport officials tell News 4 Tucson that no smoke was ever actually seen when the plane landed shortly after 3 p.m. this afternoon. The plane is being checked, and the passengers are waiting to continue their trip at this time.
Tucson Fire official Jeff Langejans confirms they were dispatched to TIA to assist with any potential medical situations, but cleared from the scene shortly after the plane landed.
