TOKYO (AP) – Smoke was seen coming from an All Nippon Airways plane as it landed safely at Shin Chitose airport in northern Japan on Wednesday, public broadcaster NHK reported.

The ANA flight from Tokyo was carrying about 200 people and no injuries were reported, NHK said.

The smoke, coming from the wing area, subsided when the engines stopped, it said.

In January, a Japan Airlines flight and a coast guard plane collided and burst into flames at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport. All 379 passengers and crew members were evacuated from the JAL plane and survived. The pilot of the coast guard plane was injured and five crew members were killed.
