Fox 9 News

A DC-9 landed at MSP and went to the gate, then passengers noticed smoke coming out of the plane. No one was injured.

When I saw this threads title I thought.."well duh". But then it hit me that it could actually be a problem.

Glad no one was injured or anything like that.

Coming out of the plane where.....??? Out of the engines can be common. Sometimes excess fuel will burn off in the can leaving a smoky cloud out of the tail pipe.

Well, this is not very clear. What part of the plane was the heck was the smoke coming from?

There are called Diesel-9's for a reason.  Wink

Any links? Since there were no injuries, no real investigation is required. Its not like NW doesn't have a few extra DC-9's available as spares...

Most likely an oil seal failed and created a bunch of smoke? Bad? Potentially. But it wasn't. Pull the engine and send it to the shop.  yawn 

However, if these stories were to become common... I would have a diferent reaction.

Well Fox 9 didn't say so I have no idea.  embarrassed  What I do know is smoke came out of the plane and when passengers got off the DC-9 they saw smoke coming out of the plane.

Let's hope that wasn't the case, or obviously people from that news channel have not been around aviation long enough to see a bit of smoke coming out of an engine like the photos you graciously posted. My assumption was that there was severe smoke from one engine, nothing from the other, or perhaps it was still smoking while the aircraft was turned off?
