Korean Air jet makes emergency landing in Japan: report

A Korean Air flight from Seoul bound for Los Angeles was forced to make an emergency landing at Tokyo's Narita airport on Sunday after smoke filled the cockpit, Japanese media reported.

The captain contacted Japanese airport authorities to report smoke in the cockpit when the aircraft was about 175 kilometres (110 miles) northeast of Narita, NHK television said.


Images showed fire engines rushing to meet the Boeing 777 as it touched down.

All 288 passengers and members of the crew disembarked and boarded a bus, according to NHK, which added that no injuries were reported.

The plane reportedly landed at around 10:05 pm (1305 GMT).

"The crew told us there was a technical problem, they removed our meal trays and we made an emergency landing," one passenger told NHK.

The flight was cancelled and the passengers will spend the night in Japan.

The circumstances were being investigated but according to preliminary information a burning smell was noticed near a refrigerator on the aircraft, NHK said.
