An American Airlines flight taking off from Orlando International Airport turned around and returned this morning after the pilot reported smelling a "strange odor" in the cockpit, an airport official said.

Flight 1083 took off for Dallas at 6:44 a.m. with more than 200 passengers. Moments later, the pilot called in a "strange odor." The plane turned around and landed safely at 6:49 a.m., according to Greater Orlando Aviation Authority public affairs director Carolyn Fennell said.

There was no impact on airport operations, and no one was hurt, Fennell said. Passengers are being placed on alternate flights. The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the incident.
