It was just a movie
A United Airlines flight was abruptly stopped at Dulles International Airport just after noon today, and passengers were evacuated via the emergency slide, according to news reports.

UA flight 757 was leaving Washington, D.C. when a pilot smelled smoke in the cabin. The pilot deployed the escape shoots, and passengers slid off the plane, with only a few passengers suffering broken bones.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 78, was reportedly on the plane -- yes, she too went down the slide.

Passengers are at Dulles International Airport, waiting for a new flight.
