Incident at Calgary, AB


1997-11-21: ACA 118 was taxiing to Runway 16 for departure to Toronto with 7 crew and 141 passengers when the crew requested a return to the terminal. The crew were then cleared to taxi down Runway 16 and exit on Runway 10/28, however the Captain indicated that he would need to exit at Taxiway C4 and return to the ramp immediately because of "billowing" smoke in one of the galleys. CFR was called out and ACA 118 was held on Taxiway J while the crew assessed the situation. The crew subsequently shut down the a/c and had the a/c towed back to the terminal. Evacuation of the a/c was not required. More details will follow. OPI - System Safety UPDATE Maintenance found that the problem was with the number 3 oven in the rear galley. The oven was removed and the a/c flown to the B767 maintenance base in Montreal for further investigation.
