WOW! What a headline, eh?

So, basically… there was a flight from Washington Reagan National Airport heading for Dallas/Fort Worth that had to make an emergency landing at Nashville International Airport. The pilot requested the landing after some passengers reported smelling burnt matches.

The plane landed safely and was met by the FBI, Transportation Safety Administration and airport authority.


The passengers and five crewmembers were brought off the plane, together with all the luggage, to go through security checks again. Bomb-sniffing dogs found spent matches.

The FBI questioned a passenger who admitted she struck the matches in an attempt to conceal body odor, Lowrance said. The woman lives near Dallas and has a medical condition.

The flight took off again, but the woman was not allowed back on the plane.

The woman was unidentified… luckily, for her. Could you imagine?

Farting Chick: Uh… well, I have this medical problem…
