A Thomas Cook 757 out of Manchester had to turn back to the airport yesterday after a heavy smell of ash in the cockpit/cabin and subsequent failure of one of the engines bleed air valves. The pilot immediately turned back and was able to land safely with both engines functional; however, it shows the danger still present in the skies. They encountered the smell around 16000 and up to 30000.

If this news is true one wonders why it has not hit the MSM.

Can anyone who has access to the site mentioned in the post on scienceblogs
ATC audio
take a look, or listen, and see if it is for real.

It does look as though it is genuine.

A further comment just turned up on Eruptions

A second aircraft has had a problem.

From the same thread:

World Airways operating CF-6-80 (older engines) also had a problem. Aircraft had to land and at least one engine is off the pylon right now.

Why hasn't this thread had more hits?

Seems pretty major to me.

All flights of Torrents grounded, as per BBC and SkyNews this evening, on account of ash damaging craft.

Intresting. We'll have to see how this develops.
Guess we're not out of the woods yet... Or should that be ash clouds..?

It seems that the MSM have got hold of it now.

It will be interesting to see how all this talk of compensation pans out.
