Roswell aids passengers after plane makes emergency landing
ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - Roswell city officials and staff at the city's visitors center made inconvenienced passengers feel welcomed and comfortable after an American Airlines plane had to make an emergency landing at the Roswell International Air Center.
The Roswell Daily Record reports American Airlines indicated that 147 passengers and six crew members were aboard a direct flight Wednesday morning to San Diego from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
But a smoke alarm in the cargo area of the plane required the plane to be diverted to Roswell. Passengers and crew remained in Roswell for more than seven hours until a new plane could arrive and be boarded to take them to their destination.
American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein says the situation was caused by a faulty sensor, and no injuries or difficulties to passengers or crew were reported.
