Today, at IND, I took several pictures of planes coming in on final, one a USAir DC-9, I then I happened to see all IND Int'l Fire equipment, didn't think anything of it!!! I got home and all news station were reporting an emergency landing of a USAir DC-9 (yes the same one)!!! Ironically, on board, the WNBA's Washington Mystics!!! The plane landed safely, and the flight was cancelled and the Mystics got to DC 5 hours late, no word on if their game tonight was cancelled!!! The emergency landing was at the hands of a sticky substance that dripped all over a passenger, and left some sort of rash...it was compared to super glue (smell and texture)!!!

Well y'all shouldn't have to worry about flying on US Airways DC-9's as they are being phased out at the moment. The new Airbus fleet will replace them. As for the dirty end of the plane, I can't see cleaning that if your gonna turn around and sell it (although it is sorta nasty, but oh well).
