OMAHA, Neb. -- A Delta jetliner has landed safely at Eppley Airfield in Omaha after a smoky odor was reported in the passenger cabin.

The plane landed shortly after 3:30 a.m. Tuesday.

No injuries were reported among the 159 passengers. Delta spokesman Paul Skrbec (SKUR'-bak) wasn't certain how many crew members were on the plane.

The cause of the odor is being checked.

The Boeing 737-800 model jet was headed for John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City after taking off from Salt Lake City.

Skrbec says another aircraft was being flown to Omaha so passengers could continue their trip to New York.
