WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A Boeine 757 made an emergency landing at the Waterloo Regional Airport just after ten today.

There's no word yet on where the plan was from or where it was headed. The airport was notified that there was smoke in the cockpit and the plane needed to land in Waterloo. The airport was notified when the plane was ten miles out.

Looks like it had filed for DSM, DBQ, and MSP and then chose ALO.

Just got a call from a friend who was walking off the aircraft in ALO - apparently it parked away from the terminal and they were getting off via air stairs. He said you could definitely smell the smoke on the plane. He's going to call me back in a few minutes once he's off with the rego.

It's N519US. They're supposed to ferry a replacement aircraft down from MSP but nothing shows up on FlightAware just yet.

According to the Waterloo/Cedar Falls Courier, local officials fed the stranded pax and then shuttled them to a local casino, haha.

In Iowa, they'll never miss a chance to take you in a casino.

I watched both video's on the WCF Courier website and I think community members from Waterloo, Iowa should be commended for banding together and taking care of the passengers after the aircraft landed safely. Reminds me of the time that a DL MD-11 had to make an emergency landing in Cold Bay, Alaska out on the Aleutian Chain. Like this event, the community banded together and made sure the passengers and crew were cared for until they were able to fly out.

Here's a snip from KWWL:

Passengers were treated to a pizza lunch, and shuttles transported about 30 people to the Isle Casino, turning the inconvenience into a sightseeing opportunity.

"This is my opportunity to come here, so it was meant to be," Angel said.

Wow...757 diverts to Waterloo, Iowa...generally, all they see is a CRJ and three Saab-340's! That must have been an interesting sight to the people at the airport too!

Looks like the 757 from yesterday got shuttled up to MSP this morning:

How does this normally work? SInce ALO isn't a mainline station, would they have shuttled some technicians down from MSP to check out the plane before getting it airborne again?

Yep - the WCF article mentioned that they were sending mechanics down. Pretty easy for Mesaba to put three mechanics on the next Saab flight out as 'must rides.'

ALO is a little station. I'll have to ask them about this next time I go there.
