HOUSTON (AP) - A U.S. Air Force refueling jet returning to California following maintenance has made a safe emergency landing in Houston after smoke was reported in the cockpit.

Air Force spokeswoman Capt. Mallory Thornton said Friday that the four-person crew evacuated the KC-10 at George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

Thornton says nobody was hurt in Thursday afternoon’s incident involving a plane from Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, California.

A Travis spokesman says the jet had been returning to California following maintenance at Chennault (shuh-NAULT’) International Airport in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The military jet remained in Houston on Friday as crews sought the source of the smoke.
