JetBlue Plane Makes Emergency Landing At Philadelphia Airport

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

There were scary moments Sunday for passengers onboard a JetBlue flight out of Boston.

The crew saw smoke coming from the cockpit, and the plane made an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport.

Those passengers were no doubt a bit shaken, but we're happy to report everybody's fine.

The flight from Boston was heading to Baltimore-Washington International with 95 passengers and 4 crew members on it before diverted to Philadelphia, landing just before 6 p.m.

The passengers of JetBlue Flight 827 wound up on the runway in Philadelphia, evacuating the plane that was forced to land due to the smell of smoke in the cabin.

Jet Blue said it was "in an abundance of caution" that the captain elected to divert after crew reported the odor of smoke.

One passenger says she smelled the smoke and found it hard not to think the worst in mid-air.

"You don't know how it's going to end, so you don't want to psyche yourself out – should I turn on my phone and call my parents?" passenger Laura-Chase McGehee said.

That passenger shot a picture inside the airport of passengers trying to get information on another flight to Baltimore and prepared for a long night ahead.

Passengers and crew were transported to the terminal building. No injuries were reported.

There, passengers were met by an airline representative to be re-accommodated on a later JetBlue flight, PHL spokeswoman Victoria Lupica said.

FOX 29's Dave Kinchen reported live from the airport Sunday night that at least one passenger was still waiting to fly out of Philadelphia after 10 p.m.

According to the airport, operations were not impacted.
