American Airlines Flight Crew Members Taken to Hospital After Flight

American Airlines Flight Crew Members Taken to Hospital After Flight Crew members smelled a strong odor as the plane was landing.

United Airlines Flight 93 was a domestic scheduled passenger flight that was hijacked by four al-Qaeda terrorists on board, as part of the September 11 attacks. It crashed into a field in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, during an attempt by the passengers and crew to regain control.

United Airlines Flight 173 was a scheduled flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City to Portland International Airport in Portland, Oregon, with a scheduled stop in Denver, Colorado.

Passengers on a United Airlines plane received disconcerting news from the crew after they were diverted to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Thursday evening when mechanical issues arose mid-flight, according to an airline representative.

Flight 4390 departed from Knoxville, Tennessee, and intended to land in Houston, before trouble arose in mid-air.

A passenger recorded what they said was the pilot or copilot making an announcement to passengers over the cabin loudspeaker, saying the aircraft had lost a pair of cockpit screens -- and would have lost them all if they hadn't landed immediately.

United Airlines spokeswoman Erin Benson said the flight was diverted because a passenger failed to follow crew instructions. "Authorities boarded the aircraft when it landed and the passenger was removed from the aircraft." Benson said all 252 passengers were put up in hotels overnight.

"So you may be able to see we lost two of our screens," the man is heard saying in the recording. "Now, if we kept flying, we'd lose them all, eventually, because there's not enough cooling. There is tremendous heat behind those screens."

"If we had continued, eventually, I'd be flying blind," he continued. "So, that's why we are in Dallas right now. It is unlikely this aircraft is going anywhere tonight."

The plane landed safely on the tarmac and passengers were ultimately rebooked on a different flight to Houston, according to the airline representative.
