AP reporting the IND-DFW flight landed at LIT after reports of smoke in the cockpit or cabin.

Passengers taken to the temrinal on busses - apparently no evacuation.

Little Rock TV stations are not carrying anything live - so apparently no real damage to the aircraft - just a precautionary landing.

Now it's landing in SHV! Look again! Two stops and still not at DFW yet!

There's a storm at DFW and lots of airborne holding and diversions.

Tell me about it - I just lost a three year old 25 foot tall red oak in my front yard. Looks like part of the fence is broken also.

And not a drop of water - still have to run the sprinkler's tonight.

Wow!

Well I just drove through some rain on the northeast side of the airport (Los Colinas/Valley Ranch) but before the rain I got a mouth full of sand from one of those Texas sand storms! LOL

According to Flightaware, DFW went 49 minutes without a departure and 34 minutes without an arrival.

I left work in Addison at 7:30 and got to Wylie with only one shower - but it's hitting out here. Not as bad as Plano near 75, but still strong winds.

Good!--That means I got some as well since I'm just north of you..

Yep, that flight was supposed to arrive @ my gate to turn AA422 DFW-RDU. It went into LIT due to reported smoke in the cabin. Another MD80 was ferried TUL-LIT to continue the flight.

Once they got on their way, the groundstop & ensuing Charlie Foxtrot @ DFW caused the flight to divert to SHV. They finally continued on to DFW and last that I saw, the flight was ETA of 2212. Sked arrival is 1535, IIRC!  sorry
