1. March 9, 2013: A Delta Airlines flight headed to LaGuardia Airport in New York City from Miami was diverted to Orlando on Saturday when crews checking equipment saw smoke in the aircraft, an official said.

The crew was testing the anti-ice equipment used for cold-weather flights. When the equipment was turned on, it emitted smoke. The smoke stopped when it was turned off, said airline spokeswoman Lindsay McDuff.

Still, Flight 2044, which left Miami at 3:30 p.m., landed safety at Orlando International Airport and the passengers were moved to a different aircraft to finish their journey. No one was injured.

2. A British Airways Boeing 747-400 jet en route to London from Los Angeles made an emergency landing at Las Vegas Thursday night, 14 Feb 2013, after crew members noticed fumes . Flight 268 landed at Las Vegas at 10:44 PM rather than returning to Los Angeles.

According to an Airnation story, ‘Medics checked the pilots after landing. Ambulances were seen leaving the airport shortly after, but officials said no injuries were reported

Various flights and aircraft have reported smoke or toxic fumes affecting cockpit crew, pilots, co-pilots, etc. in flight.  Some pilots were incapacitated and emergencies declared. SMAAC has observed that airport officials, at MSP and elsewhere, run interference for airlines.  In the sentence above read "no injuries were reported to the airport public relations office (which was almost certainly closed at 11:00 PM) but the inquiring reporter reached someone at home by telephone.

A Delta Airlines and a KLM flight each made an emergency landing at nearly the same time Monday in Amsterdam

The Delta flight had a possible fire.

CNN reports:

The airport said a fire caused the landing.

Delta would only say the plane, from Amsterdam to Mumbai, made the landing because of  “technical difficulties.” and the Captain returned to the airport and took “precautionary measures.” “The aircraft landed without incident, and passengers deplaned normally,” the airline said in a statement.  No injuries were reported, and police did not confirm that a fire or smoke caused the emergency landing.

The KLM plane, en route to Milan asked to return due to an undisclosed "technical problem".
