Incident at Thunder Bay


1996-05-21: The King Air A100, C-GASW, was twenty miles from Thunder Bay enroute Landsdown, when the crew observed smoke and fumes in the cabin. The crew selected the cabin environmental controls to full cold. The cabin cleared of smoke and fumes and the crew returned to Thunder Bay where an uneventful landing was made. There were no injuries and the aircraft was not damaged. An inspection of the aircraft did not reveal any abnormalities. The aircraft was returned to service after a satisfactory runup and test flight. Maintenance suspects contamination in the hot air ducting which had not been activated since the previous cold season.
