Campaign Scare: Mrs. Romney's Flight Makes Emergency Landing

Earlier this afternoon, Ann Romney’s flight made an emergency landing in Colorado. After Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney’s wife’s plane was diverted from its path to Omaha, NE we were informed that the plane was filled with smoke. Everyone on board was fine, but nothing has been released concerning the cause of the smoke, besides electrical troubles.

In a recorded conversation between the plane and Denver International Airport’s flight tower, a man’s voice could be heard saying, “We have an electrical issue here and we’re going to declare an emergency.”

“We’ll probably need assistance here,” he said. “We got smoke in the cabin.”

Haley said the plane, a Canadair Challenger 600 regional jet, was surrounded by fire trucks when it landed at the Denver International Airport.

No media travels with Ann Romney on her flights, but she was accompanied by four staffers, including Haley, two U.S. Secret Service agents, and three crew members.

Romney and the other passengers were instructed to put their seat belts on during the emergency landing.

The FAA said in a statement said that a Canadair regional jet charter flight operated by World Wide Jet diverted to Denver today at about 2:40 p.m. MDT after the pilot reported smoke in the cockpit.

The aircraft landed safely on runway 35L and passengers exited the aircraft via stairs on a taxiway, according to the FAA.

The flight was at 40,000 feet when it turned around to make the emergency landing, according to Flight Aware.

Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul tweeted a photo from the scene, showing firefighters storming onto the plane after it landed.

Saul said that Mitt Romney spoke with his wife as soon as she was safely on the ground in Denver.

The Denver Fire Department, the Denver Police Department and Airport Operations responded to the call.

We are glad to hear Mrs. Romney is doing well after this scare.
