I just turned on the 5 o'clock news, here in Indianapolis, and they showed an ATA 727 wearing the old colors (one of the very few left) making an emergency landing.
The flight originated as 476 from Fort Lauderdale (FLL) to Indianapolis (IND); it left FLL about about an hour behind schedule. The registration was either N760AT, or N763AT...'760' made an emergency landing in IND a couple of months ago when the landing gear locked in the down position, so they came back in and landed...this was a flight bound for Orlando (MCO); '763' is the only ATA 727 i've ever been on.
They (WTHR-13) interviewed several passengers after they got off the ol' bird, but most of them were so shaken up that they didn't even know what they were talking about.
Later on you can read the entire story at one (or all) of the following websites:
