A Delta Airlines flight from France to Atlanta made an emergency landing this afternoon at McGhee Tyson Airport after smoke was detected in the cabin, an airport official said.
No one on board the plane, identified as Delta Flight 21, was injured and the smoke "had dissipated" before the landing was made at 1:50 p.m., said McGhee Tyson Airport supervisor Mark Mustard.

"They just had some smoke in the cabin, and they decided to land here as a precaution," Mustard said.

The 767 was on a direct flight from Charles de Gaulle International Airport to Atlanta when the smoke was first detected a few minutes after 1:30 p.m., Mustard said.

Mustard said he didn’t know how many people were on the aircraft.

He also said it wasn’t clear what caused the problem.




The plane just left TYS a few minutes ago, I was hoping to go get some pics but didn't get a chance


Is it bad that I get excited to see even a CRJ overfly? Man, what this place does to you

Knoxville is close to Atlanta (15 min. at cruise speed), and considering the "smoke" had dissipated before landing, I'd like to hear more about what really went on.


Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

I've heard so many different explanations for "smoke in the cabin" that all I was saying was that I'd like to know more about this particular smoke, since it was gone before they even landed.

For example, there was a thread the other day about a BA(?) flight that had smoke due to burning some food in the ovens, not exactly a life threatening incident.

Remembering what happened on board Swiss Air Flt 111 is what went on... Give me a break... I would love to hear that announcement... Ladies and Gentlemen this is the CAPT speaking... The Crew is aware that there is smoke in the Cabin... But since we are only 15 minutes away from ATL... We're just gonna try and wing it... We should be okay..! Haha please... Good call by the crew... playing it safe is the right call..!

I didn't say that. Give me a break.

All I said is that they were 15 minutes away from the destination and they diverted, yet the smoke was gone before they even touched down. I was interested in what caused the smoke, if it had an odor, stuff like that.

So far, nobody has posted anything about declaring an emergency, fire trucks on the runway, etc., etc.

Col. Mustard didn't seem to think it was major...

""They just had some smoke in the cabin, and they decided to land here as a precaution," Mustard said. "

Just and precaution are not urgent words.

fire trucks met the plane on the runway

accourding to the local news, DL ferried in another plane from JFK to take these passengers to ATL. I guess it was bad enought that the plane might still be sitting in TYS, I'll drive over later today and see if it is still there.

You need to land at the nearest "suitable" airport "as soon as possible". Suitable means adequate runway length, weather, and other factors. Swissair 111 was criticized for playing around which allowed the fire to intensify, so pilots now land as soon as possible because of the lessons learned from that accident.

"Col. Mustard" - was anyone else wondering if, earlier in the day, he offed Mr. Body in the Hall with the knife?

Sounds like a good call by the crew.

I spoke to Col Mustard @ TYS, trying to get more info about the diversion. He said that DL is referring all questions to their new head of PR - Miss Scarlett. Calls to her went unanswered....something about being in the study w/ a lead pipe.

"Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect." - Possibly the best aviation quote ever... Which also help explain why I as a pilot, I disagree with you in thinking "precaution" is not an urgent word...

I thought they would have ferried one in from ATL, since it was closer than JFK. I know they had to have a spare aircraft sitting around there somewhere to send up and return to ATL. Hell, CVG comes to mind before JFK.



Where did everybody go?
