Commercial plane with passengers on board makes emergency landing at CVG

HEBRON, Ky. -- A commercial plane made an emergency landing Thursday evening at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG).

Airport officials said the airliner landed unexpectedly at about 4 p.m.

There were passengers on board at the time. Officials did not release that number, but said no one was hurt.

WCPO reporter Bryce Anslinger spoke to a man who watched planes land and take off from an observation area at the airport. The man said he saw several fire trucks on the tarmac, but was unsure which airline made the emergency landing, because he was too far away.

Officials did not name the airline, say where the plane was coming from or know its destination.

WCPO will provide updates as more information becomes available.
