     Former President George W. Bush stopped in Kentucky last night, but it wasn't planned.

      He had a bit of a scare in the air overnight.

     Mr. Bush was on a Gulfstream-Four plane flying from Philadelphia to his home in Dallas, when the pilot smelled smoke in the cockpit.

     The plane was diverted to Louisville where the pilot landed safely.

     A spokesman for the former President said Mr. Bush arrived home early this morning.

     No word yet on what caused the issue.
