    I’m glad to hear that they are checking the people out. Hope they are ok.

      Yes but will we hear any more about the causes and the condition of these people, follow up story’s ? News agency video as of yesterday said nothing about a possible cause !

  • WindorSolarPlease

    If they find out people got sick on the plane because of a radioactive plume from Fukushima, wonder if flights will be halted or redirected away from any radar plume sightings?

    • xdrfox

      I don’t think radar could reflect/alert a plume such as this. Other wise the SS Reagan would have ran before running into the active plume off the coast of Japan.

    (Updates with data recorder in third paragraph.)

    April 1 (Bloomberg) — An American Airlines jet lost partial cabin pressure in flight, sickening six people on board, and made an emergency landing in Ohio.

    Flight 547 had climbed to 28,000 feet from Washington’s Reagan National airport en route to Chicago when two attendants reported feeling dizzy, Tim Smith, an American spokesman, said today. The captain deployed oxygen masks as a precaution as four passengers also reported feeling ill or faint, Smith said.

    “We believe this is a cabin pressurization issue, which can have multiple causes,” Smith said in an interview. A recorder that tracks data from systems and instruments on the plane was later removed and sent to an….

  • The reality is everyone saw this scenario
    unfolding weeks ago.Our government did absolutely nothing to prepare or warn anyone for this potential disaster.As usual it is one cover up after another. It reminds me of the Titanic, the band played on and the privileged danced while the ship went down.
    Heaven forbid, we wake the sheep.If this sounds cynical, It is NOT, It is REALITY.

    Shhhhh. Don’t wake em up. They need their rest for the gay feminists rally tomorrow.
