     NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - A Navy spokesman says no one was injured when an E-2C Hawkeye made an emergency landing at Norfolk Naval Station.
 
     Naval Air Force Atlantic spokesman Mike Maus tells media outlets that the pilot noticed smoke coming from the turboprop aircraft's right engine shortly after it took off from Chambers Field at the naval station on Wednesday. The plane returned to the airfield.
 
     Maus says the plane was heading to Fentress Naval Auxiliary Landing Field in Chesapeake to conduct routine field carrier landing practice.
 
     The aircraft is being examined to determine what caused the smoke.
 
     Four people were on the plane at the time.
