Groton — A plane made an emergency landing at Groton-New London Airport on Thursday night due to smoke in the cockpit, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The Dassault Falcon aircraft, operated by Dumont Aircraft Charter, landed safely at the airport about 7:15 p.m. after the crew declared an emergency and reported smoke in the cockpit, according to an email from the federal agency. Pfizer fire officials assisted the Poquonnock Bridge Fire Department at the scene.

The aircraft later departed from the airport and was headed to Boston's Logan International Airport, the FAA said. The agency is investigating the incident.

No further information was immediately available.
