An odor of turned russet was spread little after takeoff in the cockpit of the apparatus which transported 50 passengers, indicated to Thursday a spokesman of Swiss. Saab 2000 then turned back to return in Kloten.

The Saab 2000 is not what we commonly refer to as a "jet". But the engine is the same as any other jet. The only difference is that it is connected to a gear box and turns a propellor. I think that the engine is the same as that on the Embraer 145.
