Small jet makes forced landing in Reno; cockpit smoky

RENO, Nev. (AP) - A small commercial jet flying from Spokane,
Washington, to Los Angeles was forced to land at Reno-Tahoe
International Airport yesterday after the cockpit filled with
smoke.
Airport spokesman Brian Kulpin says the plane carried about 75
passengers, none of whom was hurt.
Most were able to arrange travel on other airlines and had left
the area within hours.
Kulpin says the source of the smoke was not immediately clear,
and the plane was being studied by mechanics.
The plane is owned by Seattle-based Horizon Air.
The airline is the eighth-largest regional airline in the
country, serving 46 cities in the United States and Canada.
