A Southwest Airlines flight from Phoenix bound for Dallas Love Field made an emergency landing in Albuquerque Sunday night after a malfunction of some kind produced smoke towards the rear of the plane. In one video, someone can be heard yelling "move away from the aircraft".
Some passengers used emergency slides, while others jumped off the wing.
Passenger David Fleck said he was surprised to discover there were no emergency slides near the exit door over the wing.
Passengers have since re-boarded another flight and are now headed to their original destination with an expected arrival of 1:15 a.m. CT.
The captain of flight 3562 noticed smoke in the cabin and announced that the aircraft would be landing as the closest possible airport.
