Nobody has been injured in Wednesday night’s landing of SkyWest Airlines flight 5061 at Houghton County Memorial Airport.

 

It is located close to the cities of Houghton and Hancock.

 

SkyWest has mentioned in one of its statements that this aircraft was operating as a flight of United Express from O’Hare International Airport. It has received a ‘cargo indication’ before its scheduled landing at the airport. The airline said that the plane was able to make a perfectly safe landing without any incident and all 31 passengers had left the plane at the gate.

 

Sergeant Thomas Hyrkas of the Houghton County Sheriff’s Office said that the alarm was ‘about smoke in the cargo area’.

 

Currently officials are investigating what had triggered the alarm.
