Delta flight from Detroit to Amsterdam, but was forced to land in Manchester after a tablet began smoking. A Delta official explained that the tablet fell inside a seat and became jammed after the seat either reclined or was returned to upright.

Underneath the seat cover, the tablet and foam then started smoking and passengers could smell a strange odor.

The flight diverted to Manchester, where the seat was replaced entirely. After two hours on the ground, the flight was airborne en route to Amsterdam, where it landed at 5:11 ET.

The device that caused the emergency is apparently not the SamsungGalaxy Note 7 which is subject to recall because of a faulty battery.
