Back from Europe. Trip went like clockwork. Flight was grand, except for the wheel catching fire and the emergency evacuation at O'Hare. Am tired. More later.

ETA: Hey, my flight made the news!

Shortly after I got home, it occurred to me to check the news as well. I'm impressed -- I didn't see any media at the scene. But there were a number of passengers taking pictures and video. If I hadn't had my camera inside a bag that I had to leave on the plane (along with my passport and digital voice recorder, which were far more worrisome), I would have taken a few snaps, too, to add to the trip picspams. Wouldn't that have been the perfect cap?

All in all, for a first airplane emergency, it was a good one to have. The evacuation was pretty orderly, and the injuries mostly came from people stumbling as they got off the emergency slides, not from the fire itself.
