AVOCA, Pa. —

A US Airways flight made an emergency landing in northeastern Pennsylvania after the pilot reported a minor amount of smoke in the cockpit.

Airline spokesman Andrew Christie Jr. says the plane landed without incident Friday at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Airport. All 15 people aboard made it off safely and no injuries were reported.

The plane left Philadelphia on Friday morning and was bound for Albany, N.Y. Piedmont Airlines operated it.

The 12 passengers were driven the rest of the way to Albany, about 185 miles.

Christie says the aircraft is being inspected.
