A flight carrying 139 passengers and five crew members from Baltimore to Orlando was aborted on a BWI runway Tuesday afternoon when pilots noticed smoke in the cockpit.
Southwest Airlines Flight 3782, scheduled for a 3:02 p.m. departure, was on an active runway at the time. Emergency crews responded and "verified no immediate threat," Southwest spokeswoman Michelle Agnew said in an email.
The takeoff was aborted at 3:22 p.m., according to a Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport spokesperson. No injuries were reported.
The plane was taxied to the gate under its own power, and those on board were able to deplane through the jet bridge into the terminal, Agnew said.
The plane is out of service pending further inspections, Agnew said.
The passengers bound for Orlando were placed on other flights out of BWI Tuesday.
