Passengers finally arrive in Las Vegas after plane evacuation

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Passengers evacuated from a plane in Cedar Rapids are now finally in Las Vegas after they were evacuated from their plane.

Officials at the Eastern Iowa Airport tell us the people on board the Allegiant Air plane were told to get off the plane after a pilot smelled smoke.
The passengers finally left the airport several hours later on a different aircraft, taking off around 3:00 a.m.

A mechanic inspected the evacuated plane... it was later flown to Las Vegas -- without passengers.
