Plane Lands After Mid-Air Emergency
A flight between Edinburgh and Orkney has landed safely after declaring a mid-air emergency.
The Loganair flight to Kirkwall was diverted and landed at Aberdeen Airport at 10.36am.
Orkney MSP Liam McArthur, who was on the flight, told the BBC that the crew informed passengers that there were fumes in the cockpit.
A spokesman for Loganair said: "The captain of Flight BE6891, which departed Edinburgh International Airport at 0925 this morning for Kirkwall with 20 passengers, one infant and three crew on board, elected to divert to Aberdeen as a precautionary measure after detecting an unusual smell in the cockpit.
"The safety of its passengers and crew is the airline's number one priority and the plane landed safely without further incident. The passengers disembarked as normal when the aircraft arrived on stand.
"As is normal in such circumstances, the airport placed its emergency vehicles on stand-by.
"Loganair apologises for any inconvenience experienced by its passengers, who are all now continuing on their journey on another aircraft.''
