Martinair plane makes unscheduled landing

A Martinair charter flight from Amsterdam to Palma de Mallorca made an unscheduled landing in France on Wednesday after smoke was detected in the passengers’ cabin. The Boeing 767 with 194 passengers on board had been chartered by travel agency ArkeFly and landed without difficulty at Chateauoux.

Dutch technicians were flown to France to investigate the problem which turned out to be an excess of oil in the engine. This gave off smoke which found its way into the body of the plane via the air conditioning system.
The plane continued its journey to Mallorca later on Wednesday evening.
