An Air Canada flight was diverted to Dulles for an emergency landing on Sunday after smoke was reported in the cockpit.
Flight 7618 took off from Toronto and was supposed to land at Ronald Reagan Airport at around 6:11 p.m. Instead, it made an emergency landing at Dulles at 6:19 p.m.
According to passenger David Brown, all passengers were evacuated safely onto the runway.
Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority confirmed the incident and said in a statement that after evacuating passengers without injury, "Airports Authority Fire and Rescue responded, evaluated the aircraft for the potential cause of smoke and remained on scene as a precautionary measure until the aircraft was towed from the runway for maintenance."
One runway remained closed to about an hour and a half while other runways remained open. All passengers were transported to the main terminal to be assisted by Air Canada staff.
