The Airbus landed at Daytona Beach International Airport at 1:25 p.m, said airport spokesman Steve Cooke. Three passengers were taken to Halifax Health Medical Center by ambulance, after suffering smoke inhalation, said EVAC spokesman Mark O'Keefe. The plane, which now is at Gate 6, was flying from Chicago to Fort Lauderdale when smoke was reported, Cooke said. Officials are still trying to determine what caused the smoke in the cabin. Paramedics are on hand in case other passengers need medical attention or have to be transported to the hospital, O'Keefe said. Cooke said Spirit is sending another plane to pick up the passengers and take them on to Fort Lauderdale. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> If you wish to unsubscribe from the AIRLINE List, please send an E-mail to: "listserv@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx".
