My brother, who lives in South Bend, Indiana, told me today that a Southwest flight diverted to South Bend Regional Airport (SBN) early this evening en route from Raleigh/Duram (RDU) to Chicago Midway (MDW). Apparently according to local news the flight-deck was filling with smoke and the pilots reported they needed to land immediately and that their eyes were stinging and irritated. Southwest apparently flew another 737 into SBN to ferry the stranded passengers (whom had to wait aboard their original aircraft until a storm passed as SBN does not have jetway capabilities) to Midway, a 20 minute flight from SBN. An interesting note is that one passenger was actually destined for SBN, planning to connect to Chicago Express/ATA Connection at Midway! The authorities allowed him to deplane and go home, rather than having to fly to Midway. Pretty interesting story, ay!?
