A Northwest 747 (they didn't say which variant, but I'd hazard a guess that it was a -400) was forced to land at the airport near Fort St. John, a small city of 17,000 in northeastern BC. The reason was smoke in the cabin, and the plane was bound for DTW from ANC. This is interesting, because I didn't know that Ft. St. John would have a runway capable of handling a large plane like a 747.
A dog had to be taken out of the baggage hold and was allowed to ride in the cabin for the rest of the trip, since the ventilation system was shut down in the baggage hold. I guess the dog must've been glad it got to ride in the same cabin as it's owner!
