American Flight 442, bound for Miami, made an emergency landing at LAX today after the pilot "reported smoke and the smell of fuel in the cockpit." Egads.
All passengers are safe, according to CBS 5/AP, but it seems that "the plane was carrying hazardous material in its forward cargo area," which... isn't that unusual? Anyway, whether or not the material was the source of the smoke has yet to be confirmed.
This brings up a good question: Amtrak trains, yes or no? We've been meaning to take one down to SoCal, but are the classy? Or, well, klassy? Please advise.
