Canadair Regional Jet CRJ-700: Incident occurred November 19, 2020 at Fort Wayne International Airport (KFWA), Allen County, Indiana

FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WPTA21) - A plane headed to Dallas, Texas turned around following an incident shortly after takeoff and has made a safe return to Fort Wayne.

Flight AA3087 took off from Fort Wayne International Airport just after 7:30 a.m. Thursday and was on its way to Dallas.

Minutes after takeoff, the pilot noticed an alarm going off that indicated smoke onboard, so the plane turned around to make an emergency landing back at FWA.

The airport's flight tracker now lists AA3087 as delayed. It's not clear how many people were on board at this point.

The plane made it safely back to the terminal, and first responders can be seen on the tarmac.

ABC21 has reached out to the Airport Authority to learn more details.
