GREENSBORO -- A Delta Air Lines flight from Hartford, Conn., to Atlanta was diverted to Piedmont Triad International Airport Wednesday morning after pilots reported smoke and an odor in the cockpit.

The Boeing 757 passenger jet with 174 people aboard landed safely about 11:15 a.m. and taxied to the gate where it unloaded its passengers, said Peggy Estes, a Delta spokeswoman.

There were no injuries, but plenty of passengers scrambling to make connections.

"We have tickets tonight for the Yankees and Cincinnati Reds in Sarasota, Fla.," said Doug Cohen of Hartford, while waiting in line at the Delta counter. "So we're trying to rebook."

Delta sent an airplane to Greensboro Wednesday afternoon to pick up the passengers and take them to Atlanta.

Maintenance crews were still looking over the 757 Wednesday afternoon, trying to determine what happened, Estes said.
