WSOCTV

A passenger says a Swift Air charter plane carrying the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes made an emergency landing in Oklahoma over the weekend after a noxious smell filled the cabin.

The Boeing 737 landed at Tulsa International Airport about 4 a.m. Saturday while traveling from Long Beach, California, to Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. The aircraft was returning the hockey team to North Carolina after a game.

The team's vice president of communications, Mike Sundheim, was on the flight. Sundheim said Monday that passengers could smell something similar to burning plastic.
