    Smoke prompts evacuation of Allegiant flight from Las Vegas

    As the plane was taxiing in Fresno, it came to an abrupt stop and smoke started to fill the cabin from the front of the aircraft, said passenger Estevan Moreno, 34, a Fresno police officer.

    “We used our shirts to mask our faces from the smoke,” he said. “I was coughing pretty good from it.”

    At one point, the flight crew said they would pass out wet napkins to help passengers cover their mouths, Moreno said, but that didn’t happen.

    After firefighters boarded the aircraft, crew members asked passengers to collect their carry-on items and exit the plane down a set of rear stairs, he said.

    The airline sent Moreno a $50 voucher for another flight, he said.

    ... just another incident where the "compliance philosophy" will be used and another "warning letter" or something will be given to the operator. Only when the smoking crater happens, will any thing get done.

    ....Just add this incident to all the others. I wonder how the FAA will explain their way out of the big fatal inevitable accident(s) Allegient will have. So far they has been so lucky........Ironicslly this was one of those thirty second news reports.......It is getting boring to the media. After all everything is okay....Who got killed?

    ...just like anything, the "fake" organizations will "spin" bad things to "minimize" the impact on "them" rather than taking "ownership" for their part of the "problem". There is NO "Just Culture" in the "Fake" Aviation Administration. It's all "blame shifting" to other groups.

    ... something will happen in the next 18 months. It takes awhile for all the holes to line up!
