    PHOENIX, Ariz. - Smoke in a plane’s cockpit forced a Charlotte-bound US Airways flight to make an emergency landing in the desert.

    US Airways told Channel 9 the passengers should be back home Tuesday morning.

    The airline said the flight took off from Las Vegas Monday morning, but landed in Phoenix.

    A fire spokesman said passengers and crew complained about dizziness and lightheadedness.

    Paramedics tended to six crew members at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.

    One passenger was taken to the hospital.
