Just saw the update from the FAA and found this article:

http://www.nbc5.com/news/14857986/detail.html

Anyone know more? Apparently they are only using two runways right now.

CNN is showing live pics of the aircraft now. It appears to be to the side of a taxiway but not on it (I could be wrong). As the article stated, the chutes are deployed and there must be 30 emergency vehicles surrounding it. There are no flames or visible smoke, however.

UA flight 836 from Shanghai - a 777.

Was scheduled to land at ORD anyway.

The above news report did mention smoke in the cabin.....

Apparently, it's N220UA

http://www.nbc5.com/news/14857986/detail.html has a blurry picture at the very bottom at the moment, and it appears to be a 777 in old colors.

Must have been a possibly critical situation, they blew 3 slides on the left side. I wonder if any slides on the other side were deployed.

I thought UA used the 744 from ORD to Shanghai?

According to the Trib web article, the captain of the 777 decided to order an emergency evac of the 273 passengers and crew because of a report of smoke in the cabin shortly before landing. One person was taken to the hospital because of back pain. Runway 10-28 was closed for 24 minutes. I presume the evac occurred off-runway, but in any case a 24 minute closure is impressively short.

Anway, glad no one (hopefully) was seriously hurt in the process. Only an incident, but still certainly unusual.

My picture is almost as crappy. I wandered over to the AA concourse looking for something to bring home to the rugrat and saw the action going on. It was in the new colors.

They must have cleaned it all up pretty quickly because there were no delays at ORD at 5PM for the first time in I don't know how long I've been flying in and out of there.  Wink

Random question:

What is the cost of repacking the chutes on a 777?

I flew in from STL this afternoon and arrived 25 minutes early... shocking.

Nice job by the crew to get everybody safely evacuated with only one lightly injured. As for the cost of repacking shutes - imagine what would the cost be if there was a fire and 273 didn't leave the plane on time...?

This happened to me on 9 November 2007 on a EK 777-300ER on a flight from DXB to KWI. The crew did one heck of a decent from 40,000ft and turned back to DXB. We were also greeted on the runway by fire engines, etc.

Not an experiance I would like to relive in the near future.
