Mechanical issues led to a flight from Kansas City to Houston being diverted to Tulsa.

Tulsa International Airport officials say the Southwest Airlines flight 254 was diverted just after 9:30 on Monday morning. The plane landed safely and got to the gate at 9:41. Airline officials say the pilot re-routed the plane after passengers smelled smoke in the cabin.  There was no evidence of a fire. 

There were 76 people on board, including crew, all the passengers were re-routed on other flights to Houston.

Scary... poor people. I probably would have panicked. I was on a flight from Seattle to Tulsa and when we took off a large metal/hard plastic rail and 3 tiles fell from the ceiling of the plane. They fell and hit the four people in the aisle seats in front of me and a bracket and a bolt fell and hit the floor as well. The flight attendant was shocked but was buckled in.. the ones hit in the head were rubbing their heads but no one could even move since we were taking off.. it was scary.. we expected the roof to peel off the plane and be sucked but it was just cosmetic stuff... but that will wake your butt up. Once we leveled out the flight attendant gathered all the peices and took them to their station and put them in a closet. We rode the rest of the way back able to see up in the plane and asking for helmets for falling objects for the rest of the flight. We will never forget that flight!
