A short time later, smoke began emanating from the pilot's instrument panel. The flight crew completed the emergency checklist and opened the circuit breaker for the pilot's attitude indicator after which the smoke dissipated. After checking the weather at destination and several other airports, the crew elected to divert the flight to Goose Bay.
