Yes, you read that right.

WNCN reports that it all happened Sunday afternoon. It reported the plane had landed at Raleigh-Durham on July 16 at around 4 p.m., and cited a USA airport official as its source. The authorities of the flight termed the decision as a medical call and did not answer any further.

Brown said the plane has been taken out of service for repairs and that passengers were never in danger. The plane was not identified though it is understood to have been scheduled to land at RDU rather than being diverted as a result of the potent gust.

What is true is that American flight 1927 from Charlotte to RDU arrived at the gate 2:21 p.m. Sunday, according to airline spokeswoman Lakesha Brown. On July 16, one of the passengers passed gas in the aeroplane due to which everyone started getting nausea and headaches.

Ross Feinstein, a spokesman for the airline, released a statement, in which he admitted that the aircraft was out of service, but maintained the reason was a technical snag.
