Delta flight makes emergency landing

GREENVILLE --- A Delta Air Lines plane carrying 259 passengers made an emergency landing at Greenville-Spartanburg Airport on Wednesday after the pilot smelled smoke in the cockpit, airport manager Larry Holcombe said.

The problem appeared to be a malfunction in an air conditioning vent. "There appeared to be no fire on board," he said.

One woman aboard the Boeing 767 complained of minor burns, but refused treatment from paramedics, Delta spokeswoman Betsy Talton said.

Delta Flight 1819 was flying from Raleigh, N.C., to Atlanta.

"One woman complaing of minor burns". She was hoping this was her lottery ticket.
