Plane makes emergency stop

An American Eagle flight from Pensacola to Miami, Fla., with 46 passengers had to make an emergency landing in Panama City, Fla., Wednesday morning after the pilot reported the smell of smoke in the cockpit. Flight 3260, a 50-passenger Embraer ERJ 145, left Pensacola International Airport at 6:10 a.m., and 20 minutes into the flight landed at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport. Passengers were taken to Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport by bus for a replacement flight. (Sources: WEAR, WJHG, 07/20/16)
