HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Southwest flight heading to Las Vegas from Kona was diverted after an apparent on-board emergency, sources said.

The flight took off Sunday morning and was forced to turn around to Oahu after reports of smoke in the cockpit along with an oxygen issues, sources with the company said.

The plane had to dump fuel on their way in to Oahu in order to safely land, sources added. The aircraft was greeted by emergency crews at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

No injuries were reported and the airline is working to get passenger on an outgoing flight.
The company has yet to release official details. Hawaii News Now has reached out for more information.

This story will be updated.

I have no words.

A ‘drunk’ pilot has been arrested after flying his light aircraft from Florida to Missouri before landing on the interstate.
John T. Seesing, 35, of Prairie Village, Kansas, landed a small aircraft on I-70 near Grain Valley around 2.45am on Friday.

Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) said it believes Seesing was headed toward the Wheeler Downtown Airport in Kansas City when he ran out of fuel and had to make an emergency landing on the highway.

Seesing was the only passenger on board the aircraft and he sustained minor injuries.

The Kansan radioed in before landing and had a small collision with a guardrail, but no cars were hit.
MSHP found the man ‘intoxicated’ and arrested him on the scene. He was arrested on suspicion of a DWI, careless actions, felony possession of a controlled substance, felony unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of less than 10 grams of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the Kansas City Star.

Seesing has since been taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The 35-year-old had a student pilot certificate, which was issued in January 2020, but was not allowed to have passengers.

Listener Forum / SLC no longer available?

Can anyone explain why SLC is no longer a viable airport to listen into with LiveATC.
Even if all of  the listeners are down, one would think weather reports, airport diagrams and nearby traffic links would be available.

Would like to hear from any Pilots who've had something like this happen.

An Alaska Airlines flight was reportedly delayed due to its pilots falling out.
Five Twitter users told of the same event, which the travel site One Mile at a Time also reported.
Report: A pilot announced the plane would return to the gate and one would leave for safety reasons.
Two pilots who got into an argument on board an Alaska Airlines flight forced the plane to return to the terminal and face a delay, according to five similar reports of the incident on Twitter.

One Mile at a Time first reported the news.

According to flight-tracking websites Cirium and Flight Aware, on Monday, Alaska flight AS1080 from Washington to San Francisco was delayed by two and a half hours.

Part of the delay was due to bad weather conditions, but another factor was that the two pilots didn't get along, five Twitter users — who claimed to be passengers onboard the flight — posted on Monday.

One of the pilots announced to the passengers that the plane was returning to the airport gate, where he would disembark from the plane because he and the other pilot couldn't get along, per the Twitter posts. The pilot said they made the decision in the interest of safety, according to the Twitter posts.
Alaska Airlines told Insider that the plane returned to the gate after the captain and first officer had a "professional disagreement." The airline said "the pilots did the right thing" and they were deemed "fit to fly" after an evaluation. Alaska said it swapped the crews so the plane could fly to San Francisco. It wasn't clear what the pilots were arguing about.One Twitter user uploaded a clip, which they said captured the end of the pilot's announcement.
Another Twitter user posted a video, which they claimed was of one pilot walking away from the flight.

"After an hour and a half delay, we now return to the terminal due to 'a failure of the captain and first officer to get along,'" one of the Twitter users wrote.

Another person tweeted that the pilot who left the plane was "fuming" after returning to the airport gate.

One Twitter user posted that the flight had already been pushed back because of bad weather, but then the pilot said he and his first officer couldn't get along and left the plane for safety reasons.

Another Twitter user, who also said they were on board the plane, described the incident as "incredibly unprofessional" and said the flight attendants had no idea what was going on.

According to another passenger, who also tweeted about being on the flight, Alaska Airlines offered them $175 for the disruption.

One Mile at a Time reported that Alaska Airlines found a replacement pilot who was supposed to fly to Los Angeles the same day. The Los Angeles flight had longer delays than the San Francisco flight, according to the report and Flight Aware.

The reported incident comes at a time when airlines are scrambling to provide full services to passengers during high summer demand, as well as severe staff shortages due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Crew members have spoken out about their experiences of heavy workloads and angry, abusive passengers amid flight delays and cancellations.
(if anyone can find the departure audio, would love to hear it)
working on the Birmingham approach now

Eight people were hospitalized Wednesday after an American Airlines flight from Tampa, Florida, to Nashville, Tennessee, experienced severe turbulence and diverted to Alabama, a spokesperson for Birmingham’s airport told CBS News.

American Airlines said that despite the “unexpected turbulence,” the plane landed safely in Birmingham at approximately 3:17 p.m. local time. The airline said two flight attendants and six passengers were hospitalized for further evaluation.

Neither the airline nor the airport provided additional information about the condition of the passengers or what caused their injuries. The airline said the Embraer E175 was carrying 52 passengers, two pilots and two flight attendants.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it will investigate the incident. The National Transportation Safety Board said it was aware of the initial reports but had not yet decided whether to investigate.

Aviation Accidents/Incidents / Moment plane blows tires upon landing
« Last post by KB4TEZ on July 21, 2022, 06:33:39 AM »

(I had pulled KLAX audio of it, pretty much ado about nothing in their voices, professional all the way.
Ironically, my family and I were returning to Fla from our vacay, and our flight was right next to theirs in Atlanta.)

There is a second story in the link too.
Plane makes emergency landing on busy street

A passenger has described the terrifying moment that the tyres on his plane as it landed
The Delta flight from Hartsfield-Jackson International to LA touched down shortly after 1pm on Tuesday afternoon.

Sara Margarett gave an account on Twitter saying: ‘ATl to LAX everything is cool once we finally get in the air after being delayed an hour. OR SO WE THOUGHT.

‘We start our short final onto the runway. We touchdown (maybe a little fast) when all of a sudden POW BAM right landing gear fumbles the bag and we pop 2 tires on the right.

‘Everyone freaks out and we skidded to a stop somewhere between hell and a runway.’The passengers were initially held on the plane for an hour while ground and fire crews inspected the damage before being loaded onto buses to take them to the airport.
Thankfully nobody was injured, but two runways were closed for several hours as a result.

The incident comes while major airlines are struggling to keep up with increased air travel after pandemic lockdowns. Staffing shortages have caused a major increase in flight delays and cancellations across the globe.

Thanks, @frantzy! Your explanation makes a lot of sense.

Attaching audio and KORD diagram for @diskus and anyone else who would like to weigh in.

01:15 - frantzy false incursion source theory
03:54 - UAL 1113 clearance - fragmented by separate transmission
05:23 - go around
06:10 - explanation

@frantzy, I also noticed that clearance was being given to VV for "crossing traffic" instead of 27C full length. I wonder if something was crossing on Z at the same time and that's what triggered the incursion avoidance system you're describing. Is it possible that activity was taking place on the Ground frequency instead of Tower? I might have a listen even though it seems unlikely/impossible that something so critical would be on a separate frequency.
