A Beijing-bound flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Hefei after departing from Xiamen about an hour into the flight on Tuesday morning, March 24th. The flight, CA1802, took off at 07:52 from Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport and made the landing in Hefei at 09:18 at Hefei Xinqiao International Airport after smoke was found in the cockpit. The flight successfully landed after sending the emergency code "7700" to Hefei air traffic management, and all the passengers on the flight were unharmed. By 11am on March 24th, all the passengers had been transferred to another flight and the plane, a Boeing 737-800, will undergo maintenance at the airport. The 737 is Boeing's only narrow-body airliner in production, with the -700, -800, and -900ER variants of the 737 currently being built. A re-engined and redesigned version, the 737 MAX, is set to debut in 2017.
