Plane carrying Andrew Card makes emergency landing

A small, twin-engine plane carrying White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card made an emergency landing in Nashville after smoke began pouring into the cockpit, officials said.

Card and 12 others on board Saturday were not injured when the Gulfstream 4 plane bound for Washington landed at the Nashville International Airport around 4 p.m. (2100 GMT), said Lynne Lowrance, an airport spokeswoman.

The plane left Texas, where Card has been meeting with President George W. Bush at his ranch in Crawford, White House spokesman Ken Lisaius said.

Lowrance said the 12 other passengers included secret service members. Bush plans to stay in Texas through Monday, when he departs for a two-day trip focusing on border security that includes stops in Arizona and El Paso, Texas, AP reports.
