lufthansa-jumbo-jetA Lufthansa airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing at the airport in eastern Canada’s Newfoundland after smoke got detected inside the cockpit of the flight on 19th October, Wednesday.



The jumbo jet was carrying the passengers to Orlando in Florida and the jet initially took off from the Frankfurt airport.



Right after the flight crew detected smoke in the cockpit, the pilot requested to make an emergency landing at Gander in Newfoundland.



The Lufthansa Boeing 747 had 345 passengers and 18 crew members onboard. None of the passengers or the crew members needed any medical assistance because of the smoke.



The pilot of the flight managed to make a safe landing at the airport after rerouting the jumbo jet, where the crew members were helping the passengers, wearing breathing masks.



According to a spokesperson for Lufthansa airlines, the crew did not need to use emergency slides to deplane the passengers.



The source of the smoke could not be identified after the landing.



The airline later sent a replacement flight to carry the stranded passengers to Florida.



The technicians, sent by the Lufthansa airline authorities, are investigating the jumbo jet at present to unveil the reason behind the smoke inside the cockpit.
