Evansville Dispatch received a call from the Evansville Regional Airport about a commercial plane with smoke in the cockpit.
Officials say that the American Eagle aircraft, on the way to Huntsville from Chicago, made an emergency landing safely at the airport around noon.
The Evansville Fire and Police Departments responded to the scene. They landed without incident and the officials were given an all clear.
We're told there were around 16 people on board.
We talked to someone who was on board the plane.
The passenger told us that everyone was calm, but he and his mother smelled something funny moments before the pilot told them they would have to make an emergency landing.
He says there was no rush to get everyone out, but that everybody exited in an orderly fashion.
