DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: I also want to bring you up-to-date on the situation we have been following for the last few minutes out of Miami International Airport, this AirTran flight that had to make an emergency landing. Apparently the information we are getting, this was a flight that originated here in Atlanta, headed down to Miami. A man, who they are describing as mentally challenged, was on board this flight. He was insistent on having a tour of the cockpit.

At no time did the flight crew say they felt threatened, but they did think it was important to get the plane down. That man has now been taken into custody. The plane was able to land safely, and everybody on board there is fine.
