Kona-bound flight aborted

By 67AM KPUA News

A United Airlines flight bound for Kona had to turn around and return to Los Angeles International Airport Saturday after smoke was reported in the cockpit and cabin.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says United flight 1296 landed without incident at 11:38 a.m. Pacific Time, about three hours after it took off.

United spokesman Charles Hobart says nobody was hurt. The Boeing 757 was headed for Kona International Airport with about 150 people on board when the smoke was reported by crew members.
