British Airways flight emergency as smoke fills cabin with passengers 'terrified'

Passengers onboard a British Airways (BA) Airbus A321 safely evacuated the aircraft via emergency slides August 5 after smoke filled the cabin on its landing approach in Spain.

"The plane left Heathrow Airport earlier today and Valencia, Spain, was always its intended destination, it's believed".

The incident occurred at 7 pm on Monday evening, when the BA plane had landed at the airport and the cabin filled with smoke as soon as it touched ground, and the reasons for which are still unknown.

"We will await the accident report, but this looks to have been a very well-managed emergency situation, and overall a good outcome", it said.

Videos posted online showed the smoky cabin during the brief emergency, while other clips depicted passengers evacuating the aircraft. This is actually quite common, CNN reported, since oxygen masks are triggered by a loss of pressure, and not smoke, in the cabin.
