emergency landing flights


#1

how do I find articles on flights that make emergency landings. I was on flight 1124 on Aug. 14, 2006 when it had to make an emergency landing in st louis missouri and I can’t find any information on it.


#2

What airline? Where did the plane originate and what was the scheduled destination?


#3

American Airlines

Here are the tracks:

Can’t seem to find any information about it in Google or Yahoo. What was the problem?

It left Chicago, delalyed flight, an hour into flight, made an emergency landing in St Louis. 2 flight attendances and myself got injured.


#6

Because of turbulence?

I was thinking there might be a report about it on the NTSB Web site:

…but nothing there about it.

Severe turbulence? Or collision w/ space junk? Lots of extra zeros in that one. BTW: Isn’t it McDonnell Douglas, or did the golden arches sponsor the accident report? Who put this report together, anyway? By chance, was the original typed in large, blue font?? :wink:
