Federal Aviation Administration: Plane returns to Kennedy after 'smell of smoke'
 
A JetBlue Airways regional jet made an emergency landing Thursday at Kennedy Airport minutes after the crew reported "a smell of smoke" in the cockpit, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The plane, an Embraer E190 operating as Flight 2702, landed safely at 8:23 a.m., the FAA said. There were no injuries.

Officials said the flight originated at Kennedy and was scheduled to fly to Buffalo.

The crew declared the emergency shortly after takeoff, the FAA said. The cause of the smoke "smell" was unclear -- and the FAA said Thursday that it is investigating.
