Condor Boeing 757-300, D-ABOK, Flight DE-6334: Emergency landing in Austria

A Boeing 757 with 264 passengers flying from Germany to Turkey had to make an emergency landing in Linz in Austria after a build-up of smoke in the cockpit, police said Sunday. 

Shortly after taking off from Frankfurt on Saturday en route for Antalya the pilot reported the problem but because of storms he was unable to land in either Munich or Salzburg and had to put down at Linz's Blue Danube Airport.

None of the passengers was hurt and they continued their onward journey on Saturday evening on a different aircraft. Technicians fixed the faulty weather radar behind the problem and the plane returned to Frankfurt Sunday.
