El Al jet makes safe emergency landing at B-G

An El Al jet carrying some 140 passengers and half a ton of fuel made a safe emergency landing Monday afternoon at Ben-Gurion International Airport. The aircraft, en route to Tel Aviv from Madrid, declared an emergency after thick smoke was reported emanating from the cockpit of the Boeing 757. Magen David Adom ambulances were scrambled to the scene ahead of the Boeing 757's touchdown.
