A Luxair Embraer ERJ-145, registration LX-LGW performing flight LG-9732 from Munich (Germany) to Luxembourg (Luxembourg) with 29 passengers and 3 crew, was climbing out of Munich when the crew reported a burning odour in the cockpit, levelled off at FL100 and returned to Munich for a safe landing about 20 minutes after departure. Responding emergency services confirmed a burning smell in the cockpit, but could not locate the origin. The passengers were rebooked onto the next flight LG-9730 and reached Luxembourg with a delay of 3 hours. The airline reported a maintenance technician was flown to Munich and determined the charger of a cockpit torch had suffered a short circuit developing the burning smell as result.
