A Delta Connection flight heading from New York to Charleston,
South Carolina diverted to Myrtle Beach Wednesday afternoon when
the pilot reported smoke in the cockpit.
The Associated Press reports that among the passengers on the
plane were MSNBC personalities Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.
The two were on their way to Charleston to moderate a debate
between the Republican candidates for Governor of South Carolina
scheduled for Thursday. Lauren Morris, Department of Airports
sokeswoman for Horry County, said the plane reportedly landed
Wednesday afternoon about 1300 Wednesday.
The two hosts had plenty of time to get to Charleston, and
Scarborough posted on his Twitter account that they were driving on
to the debate.
