NEW YORK (WNBC) -- A Delta flight headed to Minneapolis from John F. Kennedy International Airport had to circle back and return to the Queens runway after a report of smoke in the cockpit, according to federal authorities.

A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, Jim Peters, said flight 2921 landed safely shortly before 9 a.m., about an hour after it departed.

It wasn't clear how many people were on board. The passengers were taken off the plane on the runway and transported back to the terminal.

No injuries were reported.

The investigation is ongoing.
