Smoke Reported in Cockpit of Plane at Bradley Airport

Smoke filled the cockpit of a Delta flight at Bradley International Airport on Tuesday evening after the plane's auxiliary power supply malfunctioned, according to a spokesperson for the airport.

Bradley Airport spokesman Sharon Traficante said no one was hurt and no passengers were on board when the smoke was reported.

Investigators determined the smoky conditions are the result of a malfunction in the auxiliary power unit that provides electricity to the aircraft, Traficante said.

The issue has been resolved but the plane will be delayed for a few hours as a result.
