It was an 8-hour flight of British Airways from Heathrow to Philadelphia but, half way into the flight, there was horror in the cockpit when both the pilot and co-pilot were overcome by toxic fumes and had to go in for an emergency landing in Goose Bay, Newfoundland.
They had to put on oxygen masks to survive.
This has been reported in dailymail.co.uk of dated 10th of February 2013.
The plane was a Boeing-777 and it had 138 passengers on board and it had to land in temperatures of minus 30 degrees Celsius.
It seems the airline had two previous cases in which pilots died after inhaling toxic fumes.
Such toxic fumes put the lives of not only the pilots and crew at risk but also that of the passengers.
There are official records with the Civil Aviation Authority that pilots and crew had to wear oxygen masks at least five times in a week to fight the toxic fumes.
