Mile High Cheese Cutting Club

An American Airlines flight from Washington to Texas landed at Nashville airport, Tennessee, after passengers alerted the crew to the smell of burning sulphur.

Lynne Lowrance, a spokeswoman for Nashville International Airport Authority said all the passengers and their luggage were taken off the plane and searched.

A very unlucky canine team was brought in to sniff the aircraft for explosives.

After questioning by the FBI, a female passenger admitted to lighting matches on board the aircraft to conceal her gas, Ms Lowrance said.

“For a long time she did not admit to striking matches and I think that was just out of embarrassment,” she said.

“She did finally admit to it saying she had a medical problem about excessive gas.”

The unidentified woman was not charged, but “American Airlines did ban her from flying on their airline for a very long time,” Ms Lowrance said.
