Pilot Diverts Plane to Tulsa Airport After Fumes Are Seen in Cockpit

LNT,

An American Eagle plane had to make an emergency landing at the Tulsa International Airport on Monday evening. The plane flying from Dallas- Fort Worth to Iowa was landed at the Tulsa Airport after the crew reported fumes in the cockpit.

Flight 3235 carrying 63 passengers, had to divert toward the Tulsa International Airport in 45 minutes after the takeoff. The passengers were evacuated immediately.

Tulsa Airport Authority spokeswoman Alexis Higgins said that the plane was evacuated on the runway at about 6.15 p.m. local time. She added that the plane was able to safely taxi down the runway.

One of the passengers, Gibril Mansaray said that the incident scared him, but he tried to keep the fear away the whole time.

Higgins said that none of the passengers or the crew members were injured.

American Airlines spokeswoman Victoria Lupica said that the airline is still trying to determine the cause of the fumes.

Fire engines were called and once the plane landed the passengers were taken to the terminal.

The fire department officials investigated the source of the fumes and the mechanics examined the plane.

Arrangements were made for the passengers to reach Iowa.
