I'm working on the audio for this once right now give me just a minute.
My audio is up below
from avherald.com: Incident: Alaska B738 at Washington on Feb 15th 2016, smoke in cockpit

By Simon Hradecky, created Monday, Feb 15th 2016 17:23Z, last updated Monday, Feb 15th 2016 17:23Z
An Alaska Airlines Boeing 737-800, registration N569AS performing flight AS-1 from Washington National,DC to Seattle,WA (USA), was climbing out of Ronald Reagan Airport's runway 01 when the crew donned their oxygen masks, declared emergency reporting smoke in the cockpit, stopped the climb at about 4500 feet and diverted to Washington's Dulles International Airport advising they would stop on the runway, they were not planning for an evacuation but wanted the trucks at the aircraft for a check for smoke, fumes and flames. The aircraft landed safely on runway 19L about 15 minutes after departure. After coming to a stop the crew advised that the smoke started to clear, there was still light smoke in the cockpit, the smoke did not come from the cabin, the smoke was kind of an oily smoke, the crew suspected the source was either the APU or right hand engine (CFM56). After checks by emergency services and after the smoke subsided the crew taxied the aircraft to the apron with emergency services in trail.

Sorry, but mine is better because I took the time to edit for sound quality, and to get transmissions you're missing.

It wasn't my intention to get in there first BTW, I was already finished before I noticed this thread.
