Canada B773 over Atlantic on May 6th 2018, member of flight crew incapacitated
Last Update: May 9, 2018 / 19:29:49 GMT/Zulu time
The aircraft remained on the ground in London for about 4 hours, then was able to continue the flight to Rome and reached the destination with a delay of 4.5 hours.
The Canadian TSB reported (erroneously stating the occurrence time as May 5th 2018 about 06:30Z instead of May 6th 2018 06:30Z): "During cruise flight approximately 720 nm West of London/Heathrow, UK (EGLL), a flight crew member became incapacitated. The other flight crew member contacted the operator’s operational control centre and the decision was made to divert the flight to EGLL. A PAN PAN was declared and the flight landed without further incident."
On May 9th 2018 the Canadian TSB wrote to The Aviation Herald: "Thanks for correcting our data. After verifications, the air operator confirmed that the correct date is May 6th for ACA890."
