A United Airlines jet made an emergency landing at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) Wednesday July 3, 2013 after the crew reported a smell of smoke on board United Airlines flight 4495 from Savannah, Georgia to Newark, New Jersey. The aircraft was 50-seat regional jet.

It was the second emergency landing at RDU Wednesday. Earlier in the day, a small corporate jet made an emergency landing when it lost power in an engine.

Allegiant Air Flight 863 headed to St. Petersburg/Clearwater Airport diverted for an emergency landing at Albany Airport Sunday night (7/28/13) after pilots reported a fire warning in the cargo area.

The MD-80 jet with 155 passengers and 6 crew (according to the airline), landed at the nearest airport they could and passengers were evacuated via emergency slides.


Editor's note:  Other sources reported that smoke or a smoke smell was present oin the cabin and cockpit.  If the source was in the cargo bay that would be the first report SMAAC Forums has received about a carco or baggage issue or in an MD-80 aircraft.

A Delta 757 made an emergency landing at Montgomery Regional Airport early Sunday afternoon,August 25th after pilots reported smoke and fumes in the cockpit.

187 passengers on the Cancun-to-Atlanta flight were sequestered in the airport. Emergency services responded to the plane, but there were no injuries reported.

The passengers boarded a second plane that evening, that flight arrived in Atlanta just before 7:15 p.m. EDT.

Note:  Atlanta is a 20 minute hop at altitude for a B-757.  One would guess the cockpit situation was pretty bad and Birmingham was the closer to landfall.

Six passengers on a flight to Chicago September 14 (2013) from Germany fell ill. Flight 432 originating in Frankfort made an emergency stop Saturday night in London so an ailing passenger could be taken to a hospital there.  Lufthansa told the Chicago Sun-Times that five more of the 309 passengers aboard the Boeing 747 then became sick after the flight continued on to O'Hare. One of those passengers was treated at the airport, and at least two others were taken to a Chicago hospital.

Note:  The airlines are becoming more aware of reports of bad smells, fumes and smoke or mist in their airliners.  This one is an example.
