I'm sure more to come, looking around now.

ALufthansa Boeing 747 plane that was bound for Frankfurt, Germany, from Newark International Airport was forced to turn around and make an unscheduled landing in Boston Monday night after smoke was reported in the cockpit.

According to online flight records, Lufthansa Flight 403 departed Newark Airport just after 8:15 p.m. and was just west of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, when the aircraft turned around and headed toward Boston's Logan International Airport.
A spokesperson for Massachusetts State Police said the crew utilized oxygen masks as the plane diverted to Boston. There were 326 people on board, according to state police.

There were no reports of injuries.

A spokesperson for Lufthansa was not immediately available for comment.
