After “unknown fumes” filled the cabin, a British Airways flight from Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN) to London-Heathrow Airport (LHR) was quickly evacuated.

On October 8, 2023, at about 16:15 local time, flight BA 475 touched down at Heathrow’s Terminal 5. Emergency personnel awaited the aircraft on the tarmac.

One of the passengers recorded video of the incident, which showed several fire trucks and police cars on the runway as passengers waited outside the aircraft.

A passenger initially stated in his post that he was trapped on a plane with a “potential contagion,” but he later clarified that there was absolutely no contagion.

Another passenger tweeted images and stated that the only information given was that fumes had been found in the cockpit and that some cabin crew had been instructed to strip off after becoming ill.

There was a “suspected chemical leak” on the flight, according to a different passenger who posted a video of the evacuation online.

While the London Ambulance Service claimed it sent a hazardous area response team and three doctors, the London Fire Brigade told the Daily Mail that no elevated chemical readings had been found inside the aircraft.
