A scary situation took place in the sky over Logan International Airport on Saturday. According to multiple reports, a commercial flight carrying passengers had to return to the airport for an unexpected landing.
Officials from the Federal Aviation Commission are investigating the incident. The plane, a JetBlue Airways flight, landed safely back in Boston.
"Shortly after departure from Boston, the crew on board JetBlue Flight 1095 to Punta Cana reported an unusual odor and customers and crew members feeling unwell," the statement read. "In an abundance of caution, the crew elected to return to Boston and was met by medical (personnel). The aircraft will be inspected."
At this time, it has not been revealed what the cause of the potential odor was. Investigators are still trying to determine if the odor was accidental or possibly caused by a passenger on the flight. In a world where terrorism is constantly a threat, officials take any kind of airplane disturbance seriously.
The flight was reportedly only in the air for an hour and 15 minutes before touching back down at the original airport. Although passengers and crew members felt ill, no one was transported to the hospital.
"JetBlue 1095, an Airbus A320, landed safely on Runway 33L at Boston Logan International Airport tonight 6:25 pm after reporting fumes in the cabin. The FAA will investigate," the statement read.
