Airline officials say one passenger aboard Friday morningís Piedmont Airlines flight from Richmond, Virginia, requested a medical evaluation but did not need to be hospitalized.

Investigators initially reported slides were used for the evacuation. But a spokeswoman for Piedmontís parent company, American Airlines, said all passengers were evacuated by stairs.

The plane was carrying 50 passengers and had a crew of four.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it was also investigating a second emergency landing Friday in Philadelphia.

Airport spokeswoman Mary Flannery says a Republican Airlines jetliner reported steering problems but the pilot was able to resolve the problem and the landing didnít require emergency activity.

Republic Airlines (http://www.rjet.com/), if that's your point, Barit. I'm guessing that's who she meant.
