Wednesday afternoon a plane with 44 passengers and 3 crew members had to make an emergency landing at LaGuardia Airport.

The plane left LaGuardia heading for Knoxville, Tennessee when reports of smoke in the cockpit potentially caused the plane to turn and head back to LaGuardia to land. The cause of the smoke has yet to be determined.

Passengers were evacuated from the plane after it touched down, and the plane itself was towed to one of the gates.

Due to this incident, other flights coming in and out of the airport are experiencing delays.
