‘Southwest Flight 709 took off from Norfolk, Va., shortly before 4 p.m. Thursday and landed at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport shortly before 4:30 p.m. without incident. The plane was bound for BWI, and then Chicago, and it was not diverted as initially reported.’
Hazmat crews boarded the plane to check the air when initial reports suggested a nerve agent was onboard. This does not appear to be the case.
‘The female flight attendant was transported to Baltimore Washington Medical Center for treatment. There was no immediate word on her condition.’
There were 139 passengers on board but they are all ok.
