Making global travel headlines today: A United Airlines flight in the U.S. made an emergency landing Sunday after the jetliner’s evacuation slide deployed middair, according to reports by CNN and other media outlets. Photos of the blown-up slide – such as the one below from quarterback Taylor Martinez – circulated on Twitter and are making news today.


The plane made its emergency landing in Wichita, Kan. No one was injured, United spokeswoman Christen David told CNN. The flight originated at Chicago O’Hare and was flying to John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, Calif.

You can see a video of one passenger’s reaction from the local Wichita TV station “All of a sudden you saw their faces go like this and you heard a big bang and a hiss,” the passenger told KWCH.

The Boeing 737 was carrying 96 passengers, according to the New York Daily News.
