Delta A333 near St. John's on Oct 22nd 2020, smoke in cockpit, possibly from wildfires
Last Update: October 27, 2020 / 14:17:09 GMT/Zulu time
The aircraft remained on the ground for about 3.5 hours, then continued the journey and is estimated to reach London with a delay of 3.5 hours.
On Oct 27th 2020 the Canadian TSB reported:
the flight crew smelled a wood smoke odour in the cockpit. The flight crew contacted cabin crewmembers, who confirmed smelling the odour in the cabin as well. The flight crew subsequently declared an emergency, began descending and completed the quick reference handbook (QRH) procedure for smoke and fumes; however, the odour did not dissipate. Following a discussion with company maintenance personnel, the flight crew decided to divert to CYYT where the flight landed without further incident.
Maintenance personnel inspected the cabin, cargo, and avionics compartments and reported no finding of smoke or haze. No faults were recorded by aircraft systems.
On 22 October 2020, multiple flights across eastern Canada reported the detection of smell related to smoke carried aloft at high altitude in Canadian airspace, which originated from ongoing wildfires in Colorado.
