CHARLOTTE (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) — Flights at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport were temporarily grounded Monday evening after a massive water main break caused the airport to lose water pressure.

The FAA lifted the temporary stop shortly after 8:00 p.m. Inside, restrooms and restaurants were closed due to the lack of water. Flight crews warned passengers to use the restroom on the planes before deboarding.

“I came in from Orlando and when we landed we were told: A) there’s no water. B) Use the restrooms before you get off. And C) they’re not allowing any more planes to land,” said Sam Lodge.Some flights were delayed, others were canceled. Specific numbers of impacted flights were not immediately available Monday evening.

Ronald Reagan National airport advised passengers flying "to or from" the airport to check with their airline prior to coming to the airport, saying the plane has "temporarily disrupted air traffic."A spokesperson for American Airlines told Fox News that the plane was experiencing a mechanical issue and that nobody was injured in the incident.

"American Eagle flight 4965, operated by Republic Airways, with service from Memphis to Regan National Airport (DCA) experienced a mechanical issue upon landing at DCA. The flight landed safely and there were no reported injuries. All passengers were bussed to the terminal," the airline told Fox News in a statement Saturday.

N953AS on FlightAware!

One of a pair of Cessna Super Skymasters, flying from northern California to Honolulu. Listening to the ZOA oceanic, they expected strong headwinds and a 15-16 hour flight time at 6000 feet for the crossing. Possiblity to need to to turn around if winds dont subside. Flight speed 120 Kts. Lots of questions from the controllers. Id be curious to hear the reason for such a pair of flights.

That's not screaming, it's energetic mentoring.  I claim screaming is when the passengers think they're going to crash.

A pilot in South Carolina survived a plane crash after the engine on his craft failed and he landed in a neighborhood tree. He said his parachute is the reason that he survived. William Kepper was flying his plane from Aiken, South Carolina when his plane engine failed. Police received calls around noon on Sunday afternoon about a plane going down near a local high school, WYFF reported.

A local Fox News affiliate reported that the plane involved was a single-engine Composite Technology Light Sport aircraft. The Wade Hampton Fire Department arrived at the scene first and WYFF reported that county and city law enforcement were also on the scene.

Kepper told WYFF that he called the Downtown Greenville Airport, the busiest airport in the state, and declared an aviation emergency. Airport officials told Kepper he was cleared to land at the airport but he told WYFF he knew he wouldn't make it there in time for a landing.Republican candidate for Virginia governor walks fine line on election fraud

William Kepper was flying his plane from Aiken, South Carolina when his plane engine failed. Police received calls around noon on Sunday afternoon about a plane going down near a local high school, WYFF reported.

A local Fox News affiliate reported that the plane involved was a single-engine Composite Technology Light Sport aircraft. The Wade Hampton Fire Department arrived at the scene first and WYFF reported that county and city law enforcement were also on the scene.

Kepper told WYFF that he called the Downtown Greenville Airport, the busiest airport in the state, and declared an aviation emergency. Airport officials told Kepper he was cleared to land at the airport but he told WYFF he knew he wouldn't make it there in time for a landing.

Instead, Kepper was forced to deploy his aircraft's parachute and hoped it would slow his craft down enough for a safe landing. Luckily, Keeper was able to guide the plane into a tree behind a house approximately three miles away from the airport.  The pilot then climbed out of his aircraft with only a few minor scratches and told WYFF that he does not need any hospital treatment. He told WYFF that the parachute is what saved his life.

A nearby neighbor named Michael Rubner told WYFF that "The officer up at the intersection said a plane had crashed and then he pointed to it and that's when we first saw the plane up in the tree."

Another neighbor said it was a miracle that the pilot survived the crash. "What I asked him was if he was actually trying to hit the tree and the gentleman said, 'No, as soon as you open the parachute, you just don't know where you're gonna land,' but just for the grace of God he actually landed on that tree. That's unbelievable," Melcom Sanchez told WYFF.
