Head first? :ouch:

From the Beeb story:

A Thomson spokeswoman told the BBC a couple of people suffered minor friction burns from using the chute, but there were no major injuries.

I note how they made sure they included the 'from the chute' bit... :}

From the horses mouth:

"Smoke (blue haze) noticed shortly after TOC from NCL by cabin crew. Captain informed and he personally had a look. Retuned to flight deck and started to consider options (get wx poss airports etc). Then told by cabin crew smoke was getting worse and pax upset.

Took decision to divert to STN. During descent smoke started to enter flight deck and O2 donned. After landing and considering a long taxi in with pax increasingly upset and smoke getting worse captain decided to evac".

It was assummed to be engine Oil burning and entering ducting.

Not wanting to pull anyones tail on this, but is there a difference between a full evacuation and an evacuation?

Full evac is where you have to get off the aircraft at the crews direction

An evac that is not full is optional as to wether or not you leave.:}

Would that be an expert opinion?

I love the idea of having a bit of a debate about evacuating or not, at pax discretion.

A long-term investigation into Organo Phosphate oil contamination and poisoning due to failed RB211-535-E4 seals is currently underway by BALPA. I noticed with interest the registration of the particular airframe.:hmm:

I can remember a similar incident where we needed to wipe the oil smears off the instruments. 40 minutes after landing, the eng said he still saw a thick fog of blue fumes when he entered the flightdeck. If anyone knows the names of the crew involved then can they suggest that they contact Tristan Lorraine at BALPA about the blood tests. I was as sick as a dog for a week after the event.

Dream Buster 23rd Oct 2006 17:57

I think you will find that the 'long term' investigation by BALPA was a bit too long term for most people to bear.:ugh:

As a matter of fact and for some very good reasons, the BALPA Quality Expert is no longer at BALPA.:E

Just for the record.:D

DB:ok:

G-BYAO of Thomsonfly
 
hey everyone, G-BYAO had a emergency landing at NEMA about 2 weeks ago, as the engine was making a vibrating noise and there was smoke in the cabin, maybe the same kind of thing, if so i think that aircraft needs work dont u agree.:ok:

Well done Tom crew
 
Well done Tom crew, they earned their on that sector.
Very glad everyone is safe - the investigators can research the cause
at their leisure but you can't replace the crew & pax.

Global Cabin Air Quality Executive - now run by IPA/IPF since BALPA has withdrawn gradually from the subject. 1st meeting was at Gatwick on 5&6 OCt 2006. Next one is 7/8 March 2007. See www.ipapilot.com

Glad these chaps made a successful recovery into STN and got the pax out asap. Well done!

"Captain informed and he personally had a look. Retuned to flight deck ...."

I hope that part of the rumour isn't true!

Glad to hear all got off OK.

Thomson 757
 
Ermm.............just heard that a Thomson 757 has aborted take off at Stansted. A/c is safely sitting on taxiway all shut down with forward door open, fire brigade in attendance.

Bluebaron 24th Oct 2006 14:12

easyprison,

Capt did have a look (spoke to him personally). Seems like a good idea to me, given the circumstances. If there was a thick black cloud and fire then maybe he would not leave the flight deck but as stated the cabin crew had only noticed a slight blue haze so well worth checking it out rather than diving for the deck.

Although i appreiate every instance if different.

BB;)
