The Boeing 737 took off at around 10:56 AM and minutes after the cabin filled with smoke. After declaring a Mayday, the crew entered a holding pattern to burn fuel for landing. After one hour the plane landed without any incidents. Improper de-icing prior to take off is belived to be the cause of the smoke.
