DeltaCRJ-900SAN DIEGO – Smoke in the cabin, pressurization problems and dropped oxygen masks forced a Delta jet heading to Salt Lake City to turn back to Lindbergh Field.

Delta flight 978 had been scheduled to depart from Lindbergh Field at 6:18 a.m., according to airport spokeswoman Diana Lucero, and apparently took off before problems appeared.

The captain reported smoke in the cabin, and the plane circled back and landed at Lindbergh Field without incident at 7:02 a.m., Lucero told City News Service.

The pressurization problems caused the Boeing 737’s oxygen masks to drop, television station 10News reported.

The passengers were rebooked on other flights, per standard procedure, Lucero said.
