Ryanair flight to London Stansted heads back to Bucharest after cabin fills with smoke


On 21 January, a Ryanair Boeing 737-800 (EI-EVH) operated flight FR1006 between Bucharest, Romania and London Stansted, United Kingdom. The aircraft carried 169 passengers.

At 5,000 feet, the aircraft stopped climbing and entered into a holding pattern. On a video that appeared on social media, you can see that the aircraft’s cabin starts to fill with smoke. The pilots decided to head back to Bucharest airport, where they safely landed more than one hour after initial take-off.

Bart Noëth: Since 1996, I have been working in the Belgian airline industry, from a weekend job as a cabin aircraft cleaner to a flight attendant. After the demise of Sabena - in 2001, I created a website called www.luchtzak.be, originally a meeting place for plane spotters and aviation freaks. Since 2017, the website changed into a professional news site. Next to aviation, I love to travel, wine and dine and enjoy my time off(-line) with my girlfriend, friends and family. My favourite football squad is KV Mechelen, I am an Ironman 70.3 finisher and my ambition is to complete a full Ironman.
