British Airways Plane Fills with Smoke In-Flight


I personally think those are pretty good pilots to land it, like all the other aeroplanes that landed during emergency’s. I sincerely congratulate each and everyone of the pilots, but still, so many aeroplane incidents happening lately, eh?

Hey mate, could you add some more detail and maybe your opinion on this incident

It seems like the FAA (Or any aviation government agency) aren’t doing much about them either… maybe they should be called FAOTCA (Federal Aviation One Time Certification Agency) I’m not joking it’s all probably true

Thanks for prompting me mate 😉

Don’t really know how this applies to the FAA…

Read what I put next to FAA and I put them beacuse most other agency’s tend to approve aircraft after they do

See, the FAA has laws and regulations about safety on aeroplanes, and obviously, they didn’t check that aeroplane too well

Well, you can smoke often the captain turns off the no smoking sign, so I think the plane just had a long day🤣

That may be true, but we don’t know the situation regarding this case. It’s not the FAA’s fault right off the bat. Let’s take this to PM if you want to take this further.

That’s terrifying. Imagine being on the aircraft, where its just filled with smoke. I would get a panic attack being stuck at cruising altitude with smoke in the cabin.

Smoke at FL300, what next. Fire at FL180.
I would be in panic, I hope everyone was ok.

I’ve noticed it, too. I’m not sure if it’s me getting into aviation more and just realizing it more, but I’ve noticed more aviation incidents, lately. Seriously, I hope everyone was okay. Smoke filling a small space like that. Imagine how long the passengers/crew must have been breathing it in.

Well first of all the FAA doesn’t oversee flights not in the country. If it happens intentional in this case a British Flight than the U.K. Equivalent would investigate this. As for the FAA there actually 20 years behind in ALOT of things

If let’s say a Virgin Atlantic aircraft were to have an accident over Germany, who would deal with it?
