A Local TV Outlet here in GSP has reported that a Delta Aircraft has diverted to GSP due to smoke in the cockpit and a passenger being burned. Will post more details as I can find them.

Looks like a sub for the 757. Very nice.

Passengers say more than midway through the flight they heard a loud boom, and then immediately smoke and white ash started to fill back of the plane. The person seated in that row was completely covered in some type of insulation.

Passengers say they started to scream, cry and rush toward front of plane.

They also say the heat was overwhelming.

Passengers say flight attendants began immediately helping passengers, reassuring them that they were going to make emergency landing

The FAA says it has very preliminary information. There was some sort of explosion. The flight, Delta 1819, was on its way from Charlotte to Atlanta when it was diverted to Greer. The Boeing 767 landed safely and taxied to the gate. One person has minor burns and was taken off the plane at GSP. Hazmat is on the scene trying to figure out what exploded on the plane.

Would/could an overhead oxygen canister have caused such an event? Have they been known to explode?

Yes, undoubtedly reports that it came from the cargo hold are speculative. Who knows...

How did you know that??  Wink Would have been nice to see that on approach here, but there was a driving rainstorm in progress at the time.

The passenger story sounds like a fire extinguisher going off.

Dry chemical fire extinguishers like used on aircraft produce a lot of what people often mistake for white ash. There is no explosion - just a huge loud rush of air. The actual powder looks like ash, and the amount of powder in the air looks like smoke.

It can be very scary and confusing - when the emergency systems are reacting the way they are supposed to react.

In the very short period that I worked for DL in RDU back in 01-02. It was not unusual for a 762 or 763 to sub for a 757. What sucks is that DL didn't (not sure now) have cargo loaders at RDU, so they either had to be borrowed or on the 762's bags could be bulk loaded on the floor of the pits.

I was calling shadiness when I saw the press report that said 269 pax were onboard, until I saw it was a 763.

From the description it was an ECS duct failure. Source of heat (burned passenger), noise and white ash, not an unusual occurrence.

Commercial aircraft do not use Dry Chemical.... they use Halon... which produces no residue. It is a gas that absorbes the O2 and snuffs out the fire

It's reading like they were 'burned' from the hot air from a broken duct...not a fire

The only O2 cylinders in that part of the plane are the F/A walk around bottles....plus...how would it even get hot....???

It is a pneumatic duct problem and the "white ash" is more than likely just plain old household type dust that normally accumulates in rarely accessed areas of the fuselage that was blown into the cabin by the rush of air from the blown duct.
Scary for those on board to be sure but not life threatening nor would the aircraft ever have been in danger of crashing.

The local news in Raleigh mentioned something about the air conditioning system malfunctioning. Perhaps a pack caught on fire or overheated?


If landing is about "kissing" the ground, you just about raped it.

I'm thinking it might be for the NCAA tournament going on there the next couple of days.
Just a guess though.

Maybe CLT will see some here in about a week or so. We have the sweet sixteen and elite eight i believe!

I was thinking of the same thing, bleed air or hot duct tubing has bursted and the rush of air damaged and sent tiny pieces of insulation airborne which is mistaken for white ash...

Packs are located between the wing and the body...stuffed inside the wing fairing...
