The company that handles commercial aircraft refueling at the Chattanooga Airport says an internal investigation is under way after a Dallas bound flight [2762], departing Chattanooga Wednesday [Nov 11 2015] morning, had to make an emergency landing in Huntsville, Alabama due to an issue with the plane's fuel cap.

"He looks out on the wing and just sees fuel just flying out of the wing," says Cleveland's Richard Henson, one of the 41 passengers aboard American Airlines flight 2762.

Pity there's no footage of this from the ground. It would be interesting to see what it looks like. An inadvertent fuel dump.
