Plane makes emergency landing in Buffalo

Officials say a commercial flight carrying 34 passengers had to make an emergency stop in Buffalo after the crew reported smoke in the cockpit. The plane landed safely and no one was injured. 
A Chautauqua Airlines flight operating as United Express reportedly made the emergency stop in Buffalo on Sunday. The flight departed from Cleveland and was scheduled to land in Boston at 12:18 p.m.  

Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority spokesman Dan Hartmayer says that the crew reported smoke in the cockpit and pilots decided to divert to the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.  

The cause of the smoke was not immediately known.  

Passengers were being placed on other flights.
