Incident occurred December 22, 2015 at Salt Lake City International Airport (KSLC), Utah

A worker de-ices a plane after a FedEx cargo plane was forced to return to Salt Lake International airport after a warning signal alerted the crew to a possible problem Tuesday, Dec. 22, 2015.
 


SALT LAKE CITY — A FedEx cargo plane that took off from Salt Lake City International Airport on Tuesday morning turned around after the aircraft indicated the possibility of smoke on board.

Flight 3606 to Indianapolis landed safely in Salt Lake City around 9 a.m., about an hour after taking off, said Bianca Shreeve, airport spokeswoman.

The plane was inspected at the airport for smoke or other malfunctions, but none were found, said FedEx spokesman Jim McCluskey. After meeting various safety checks, the aircraft departed again for Indianapolis, still carrying its full load of cargo, McCluskey said.

The flight's turnaround was standard protocol after such an alert, he said, adding that the crew on board "followed normal safety procedures."

McCluskey said he didn't know what caused the alert.
