DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: We do have breaking news we have to get back to, and that is the issue of this AirTran flight that made an emergency landing at Miami International Airport; a few more details on that situation.

Apparently there was a man described as mentally challenged, who was on board this flight, AirTran Flight 501, that was already scheduled to land in Miami. And he kept coming up to the cockpit insisting on wanting a tour of the cockpit. And at no point, the flight crew says, did they feel threatened by this man, but they thought it was important to get the plane down on the ground. Therefore, that explains the emergency landing at Miami International Airport.

No one hurt; everyone fine. AirTran Flight 501 making an emergency landing at Miami International Airport.
