Ratt + Dokken Involved in Plane Scare

Facebook: Ratt

For rockers who spend their careers traveling, there’s always risk. Saturday in Illinois veteran rockers Ratt and Dokken endured one of the scarier moments of their career when the plane they were traveling in had to make an emergency landing after smoke was discovered in the cockpit.

According to CBS News, the private plane took off from the Moline airport, but pilots began to notice smoke in the cockpit of the plane when they reached 7,000 feet and made the decision to land.

Chuck Brennan, a friend of the bands who chartered the flight, stated that the pilots donned oxygen masks and were able to land the plane with no incident. He added that despite the presence of smoke, the plane’s cabin did not fill with smoke and all thirteen passengers escaped with no injuries.

Ratt and Dokken had performed in Moline on Friday night and were in route to the Chicago suburb of Wauconda for a Saturday performance. After the plane incident, the two bands took SUVs to the venue and expected to make it to the venue by show time.
