Austrian A321 at Vienna on Sep 10th 2021, smoke in cockpit
Last Update: September 10, 2021 / 16:13:36 GMT/Zulu time
A passenger reported there was a sudden intense odour of burnt plastics, the captain subsequently also announced (audibly on oxygen mask) there was a smell of burnt plastics originating from a failed avionics blower fan. Cabin crew acted very professionally and calmly. The odour subsided while the aircraft positioned for landing, the aircraft was received by emergency services.
The airline reported the aircraft returned due to smoke in the cockpit, the crew donned their oxygen masks. A failed fan was the cause of the smoke. The passengers were rebooked onto a later flight, the aircraft to perform that flight OS-235 was upgraded to a Boeing 777.
