Smoky smell briefly halts planes at Boston airport

Traffic was briefly halted at Boston's Logan Airport after a smoky smell on a Delta Connection flight that was eventually aborted. Airport spokesman Phil Orlandella says takeoffs and landings were halted for about 25 minutes after the flight to Columbus, Ohio, was aborted around 10:30 a.m. Friday.

He says there were 25 passengers and three crew members on board and no reports of injuries.

Orlandella says the smell may have been caused by deicing fluid. It's still being investigated.
