Engine fire in a modern commercial airliner=not THAT big of an inflight emergency (read: not newsworthy). Sure it makes ARFF happy and makes for a pretty red flashing light show on the ground with all the trucks rolling out, but unless the fire can't be put out in the air, it's not that big of a deal. It could be a relatively minor thing. No worries.
What a great night! I heard that the entire airport was closed for a while due to weather too! Somehow, MSN got lucky and all the storms formed over the East side of the airport and we had a mostly sunny day on the field! Of course, our whole crew had never seen a tornado until this evening either. Had an F0 form about 4 miles north of the field.
Hey Obama, keep the change! I want my dollar back.
