There are few things that get a pilot's heart pumping like the
report of an on-board fire. Thursday night, a Comair RJ (file
photo, below) was forced to make an emergency landing after a fire
was reported in the lav.
Just 12 miles out of Rome, GA, when the fire was reported; the
Comair crew elected to take advantage of a 6000 foot runway at
Richard B. Russell Regional Airport (RMG) in Rome, executing a
landing at 1950 EST. Thankfully, no injuries were reported among
the 48 passengers or three crew (though their launderer may have
something to say about that...). The Comair flight was enroute from
Atlanta to Huntsville, Ala.
The FBI and NTSB are reportedly investigating.
