Published on : Friday, December 22, 2017

Delta Airlines flightPassengers who had been travelling from the East Coast to the West discovered that their aircraft had to be diverted to the Rockies after smoke started streaming out from the aircraft’s cockpit on Thursday morning.

 

The Boeing 737 had landed safely in Colorado Springs after the scare in the air.

 

Greg Phillips who is the director of aviation for the Colorado Springs Airport mentioned that since they were able to accept diversions, there was a Delta flight from Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina heading to Los Angeles that had to make a landing and all the passengers departed.

 

He went on to add that they were taking good care of them in their terminal.

 

The Colorado Springs Fire Department also responded to the incident.

 

Philips expected that Delta would offer an alternative airplane for the passengers, but were not able to confirm.

 

The cause of the smoke is yet to be known to the media.
