Allegiant Air 822 Makes Emergency Diversion From NY to Maryland
On Allegiant Air 822, everyone aboard the Airbus A320 was leaving Clearwater International anticipating a routine flight and to land at Elmira/Corning Regional Airport. A Brake Control panel light changed all that. Pilots diverted to Baltimore. Passengers assumed the brace position, and survived the landing without further ado. No injuries and no obvious problems occurred, though the control panel alert suggested that brake issues might have been going on.
Passengers arrived at Big Flats, NY, at 3:00 a.m.
