Flight evacuated after passenger "passes gas"

Flight evacuated after passenger

Things are getting a bit freakish on flights nowadays, and people cannot get over this.

A passenger "passed gas", forcing everyone from a plane at Raleigh-Durham International Airport Sunday afternoon, according to WNCN-TV.

The airport's mixed messages prompted several media outlets to report that the plane had been forced to land in Raleigh - though it was the intended destination - and to be evacuated. RDU officials did not identify where the plane was going and where from or what type of aircraft was involved. The authorities, however, termed the decision as a "medical call" and refused to answer any further. An airport official subsequently said it appeared a passenger had "passed gas".

"But it is not due to "passed gas" as mentioned," a spokesperson for the airline said.

Orlando man OK after van is crushed in I-4 crash
A large metal pipe flew off Wharton's truck, tumbled off the overpass and landed squarely on the roof of Escobar's Pontiac Van. A minivan driver narrowly escaped death when a large metal pipe fell onto his vehicle on I-4 near Orlando.

Ross Feinstein, a spokesman for the airline, released a statement, in which he admitted that the aircraft was out of service, but maintained the reason was a technical snag.

American Airlines, however, said the smell was due to a mechanical issue.

What is true is that American flight 1927 from Charlotte to RDU arrived at the gate 2:21 p.m. Sunday, according to airline spokeswoman Lakesha Brown.
