Smoke in cockpit diverts NYC-to-Montreal flight

An American Eagle flight from New York City's LaGuardia Airport to Montreal was diverted to an upstate New York airport after smoke was reported in the cockpit and cabin late Tuesday, but it made a safe emergency landing, the airline said.


Flight 3364 was just north of Albany International Airport when the crew reported an odor and smoke, airport spokesman Doug Myers said. The plane, which had 36 passengers and three crew members, was cleared for the emergency landing at about 5 p.m. Tuesday.

The passengers and crew members were taken off the plane, and there were no injuries.

Airport fire and safety crews were trying to determine the cause of the smoke.

The airport spokesman initially said it was unclear how the travelers would resume their trip because American Eagle doesn't serve Albany. But Fort Worth, Texas-based American Airlines, which is owned by AMR Corp., said it was sending another plane for the passengers.

"We are sending a replacement aircraft to pick up those passengers and continue them on to Montreal," spokesman Mike Trevino said Tuesday.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
