The aircraft was taxiing for takeoff at London (City) Airport when ATC informed the commander that their anti-collision lights were not illuminating. Shortly afterwards the flight crew identified that the associated circuit breaker ‘popped’ whenever the lights were selected ON. Meanwhile, the cabin attendants reported that the cabin was rapidly filling with smoke. An uneventful evacuation of the aircraft was carried out with no injuries to any of the crew or passengers. The investigation concluded that the crew experienced two 2 unrelated faults and that the smoke in the cabin most probably resulted from leakage of oil from the left engine into the left Environmental Control System pack.
