AAIB investigation to Boeing 757-28A, G-OOBC

Smoke emitted from forward galley ovens resulting in diversion, en route from Manchester to Girona Airport, Spain, 8 July 2017.


During a passenger flight to Spain, extensive smoke emitted from the forward galley ovens which, despite cabin crew actions, did not dissipate. The aircraft subsequently diverted to London Gatwick. An investigation by the operator determined that the ovens had been cleaned with a degreasing fluid which was not designed to be used in aircraft ovens.
