Las Vegas NV- 37 passengers and two crew members succumbed to fumes after a 737-200 (N666JT) landed at McCarran Airport. The 737 aircraft was taxing to parking when the crew reported fumes in the cockpit. Captain Brian Aldridge stopped the aircraft on the taxiway and ordered an immediate evacuation. Details remain sketchy as injured passengers report a sweet, vanilla smell just before the emergency doors were opened. One passenger reported a smell similar to cookie dough.
“It was a normal landing and we were going to the gate when everyone started coughing and gasping for breath. the doors came open as soon as we stopped and I got the hell out of there. It was hard to see and it smelled like chocolate chip cookies. ”

The surviving passengers and crew were rushed to University Medical Center where they are being treated for lung damage and chemical burns. Three are in the hospital’s ICU and are listed as critical.
NTSB investigators have said that this mishap is similar to one that occurred to a Boeing 737-United Flight 1313 which crashed while attempting to land at the Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, AZ on February 5, 2017.
The information briefed to members of Congress includes a hotel receipt that suggests 3 additional individuals who have ties to Guanajuato, Mexico participated in the Las Vegas Shooting and came in through the US Mexican border, despite the FBI’s claim that Stephen Paddock acted alone and that the shooting was not a coordinated act of terrorism. The receipt shows that a man by the name of German Torres Moreno rented a hotel room at the Knotty Pine Motel in North Las Vegas on September 29 throughout October 1, 2017, the day of the Las Vegas Shooting. Moreno checked into the hotel with his driver’s license, which was traced back to Guanajuato, Mexico. Guanajuato is of significance, because it is where Mexican Military Intelligence discovered an ISIS recruiter in 2015.-lauraloomer.us
The ISIS newsletter described the shooter as a 64 year old male, Stephen Paddock’s age, referred to the killer with the Islamic name, Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki, and claimed the man had converted to Islam exactly six months prior to the attack.

On day one, I said that there were two or more weapons being fired. I felt that Paddock was a patsy. He was there to sell weapons. What a handy way to get someone to bring weapons to the room. He was shot first and then someone (the three women?) began to shoot. ISIS claims that Paddock converted to Islam. The Warren Commission said Oswald had no ties to the FBI or CIA. [mic drop]
