    Talking New Terrorist Weapon? Minced Onions Cause Airplane Emergency, Forced Landing

    Crew Diverts To Boston After Being Overcome

    BOSTON -- Hold the onions! The crew of an Alitalia flight made an emergency landing at Logan International Airport after being overcome by noxious fumes.

    However, the reports of a toxic chemical leak that sent Boston firefighters and emergency workers into their hazmat suits turned out to be five tons of minced onions.

    The plane was bound to Miami from Milan Tuesday night when the crew was overcome by the odor and donned oxygen masks.

    After inspecting the cargo in the aircraft, FAA spokesman Jim Peters said investigators determined the scare was caused by the vegetables.

    “We narrowed it down to the 10,000 pounds of onions in the cargo hold,” he told The Boston Herald.

    The onions were added to the FAA “No Fly List” and the cargo was trucked from Boston to Miami. The crew flew the plane to New York Friday.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    Onions on a Plane (2008) -Plot Summary

    Nelville Flynn escorts a witness onto a plane headed for Los Angeles. Problem is, an assassin who is bent on killing the witness has released a crate containing about 10,000 onions onto the same plane. Nelville finds out and he's bent on doing his job and getting the onions back where they belong; on land. Or in onion heaven, where they'd be harmless. But can he get the onions off the plane before it's too late?

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.
