Air Canada A333 at Frankfurt on Sep 26th 2012, acrid smell, thin smoke and temperature rise in cockpit
Last Update: October 1, 2012 / 20:59:43 GMT/Zulu time
The Canadian TSB reported the crew noticed an acrid smell in cockpit and cabin, thin visible smoke and a temperature rise was observed in the cockpit. The aircraft landed 40 tons overweight. Maintenance determined the #1 air conditioning system as source of the smoke.
An observer on the ground reported a high number of emergency vehicles including fire engines and ambulances deployed to runway 25C a few minutes prior to the A330 landing at what appeared a higher than normal speed. The aircraft vacated the runway and taxied to a remote apron at the western end of the aerodrome soon being surrounded by all emergency vehicles, fire brigades checking out the landing gear.
