First lady Melania Trump's plane was forced to return to Joint Base Andrews Wednesday after a "mechanical issue" that led to smoke in the cabin.

According to the press pool traveling with Trump, about 10 minutes after the plane took off, reporters could see a thin haze of smoke and the smell of something burning. Reporters were brought wet towels and told to hold them over their faces if the smell became too strong.

The plane, a Boeing C-32A, landed safely. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar also was on the plane, a pool report said.

The White House did not immediately provide an official explanation of what happened. Stephanie Grisham, Trump's communications director, told CNN the incident was a "minor mechanical issue. Everything is fine and everyone is safe."

Trump was headed to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, where she was scheduled to make remarks about neonatal abstinence syndrome. She was originally scheduled to return to Washington Wednesday afternoon.

The trip remains on for later Wednesday and the first lady will take a different plane, Grisham said.

An Air India plane smashed into a wall on October 12 during take-off and then continued to fly.

Air India Boeing 737 had 130 passengers and six crew members on board when it hit an airport perimeter wall right after takeoff at the Tricky Airport in Tamil Nadu. Despite hitting the wall, the aircraft continued to fly for another four hours across the Indian Ocean and halfway to Dubai.

After two hours in the air, the plane was ordered to return to Mumbai, India, by ground control, for obvious safety reasons.

I also was having issues with several feeds not having audio or would not load at all w/flash.
All browsers were having the same issue .

I had to download the feed and then place it into the  VLC Media player for  them to work

Wow thank you so much! It’s not a particularly short runway is it? Looks like it’s 6886ft.

It's over a mile long, so that isn't bad for a B737. SNA has runway 20L at 5701ft.

BL.

Aviation Audio Clips / 16 OCT: SWA 900 Missed Approach at KBUR?
« Last post by rpawlik on October 16, 2018, 07:18:43 PM »
I was on SWA flight 900 from DEN to BUR today (16 OCT) and we had a missed approach to RWY 15 around 9:30am local time. We were about 10 ft from touchdown so there had to have been a close call with other traffic on or near the runway. I've never been on a flight that had a missed approached and it was intense. I'd be interested to hear the radio chatter if someone knows where I can find it. Or if anyone heard the incident, I would like to know what happened!

Thanks for your help!

Today's update to Flash Player seems to have fixed the problem in Firefox.  All the feeds I tested are now working live.

For reference, next to the minutes and seconds in the upper left, the problem version displayed a circle.  The new version displays a circle for a second or two, then changes to a right pointing triangle.

Any pilots able to describe what its like once you touch the ground? Is there a lot of stress on the gears as you re-align the plane once it touches the ground, and how does one go about doing that? Thurst I suppose?
