A flight bound for SFO was suddenly diverted to a Oakland International Airport on Thursday, leaving the aircraft-- and its passengers-- stuck on the tarmac for hours.

The long delay without air conditioning, food or water led to extreme frustration among passengers. Two were detained, and one passenger who had trouble breathing was hospitalized.

Patrick Smith, an airline pilot and creator of Ask the Pilot dot com blog site, spoke with KCBS Radio Anchors Stan Bunger and Susan Leigh Taylor about what went wrong.
