Delta flight makes emergency landing in Albuquerque after smoke fills cabin

A Delta Air Lines flight was pressured to make an emergency landing Tuesday after the aircraft’s cabin stuffed with smoke. 

Delta Air Lines Flight 2846 —  which was headed to Los Angeles International Airport from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport — landed safely at Albuquerque International Sunport following a flight-crew report of smoke in the cockpit and passenger cabin, Federal Aviation Administration public affairs specialist Donnell Evans mentioned in a press release. 

Videos captured aboard the Boeing 757 confirmed passengers calmly seated because the cabin slowly stuffed with smoke whereas an alarm blared. 

One of the passengers, journalist Mark Johnson, tweeted that the pilots needed to make an emergency landing after one of many engines shut down. Officials haven’t confirmed the reason for the smoke

After safely landing, passengers have been captured cheering on the pilots and flight attendants.

The FAA mentioned it can examine the incident.

Delta organized for the flight to proceed on to Los Angeles with a distinct aircraft, which was set to reach later Tuesday night time, the airline mentioned.
