American Airlines flight from Dallas makes Emergency Landing on Monday

An emergency landing has been made by American Airlines flight from Dallas when the pilots sensed an `unusual odor' in the cockpit. The plane was traveling to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, from Dallas-Fort Worth when diverted to Tulsa.

The plane landed safely at Tulsa International Airport, and the 63 passengers and a crew of four were taken to the terminal. Tulsa International Airport spokeswoman Alexis Higgins said that the passengers were asked to get down when airport responders ensure that everybody was ok. The passengers were provided with transportation to the terminal building.

"I tried to say like, you know odds of me dying in a plane crash, are very minute, so let me just try to keep myself together and then I was still thinking, I don't want to die in plane crash", said Gibril Mansaray, who was onboard.

According to another passenger, Tim Slavin, the crew onboard the plane handled the situation very well.

Mechanics analyzed the jet and the plane was taken out of service. According to the airline, they are putting efforts to take the passengers to their original destination. According to a Tulsa Fire Department dispatcher, the incident was reported by the airport after 6 pm. Higgins said that all 67 passengers and crew members are safe.

Victoria Lupica, American Airlines spokeswoman, said the airline is still trying to find out the cause of the fumes. On the runway, the plane was evacuated at about 6:15 pm.
