'Vaping' Pilot Caused Air China Plane To Plunge 6,500m

'Vaping' pilot caused Air China plane to plunge 6,500m

A co-pilot smoking an e-cigarette on an Air China flight caused the plane to start a rapid emergency descent, investigators have said.

They say he tried to hide the fact that he was smoking but accidentally shut off the air-conditioning, causing oxygen levels to fall.

The crew on Tuesday's flight from Hong Kong to the city of Dalian released oxygen masks and brought the plane more than 6,500m (21,000ft) lower.

It later returned to cruising altitude.

An initial probe by China's Civil Aviation Administration in China has shown that the co-pilot tried to turn off a fan to stop smoke reaching the passenger cabin without telling the captain, but turned off the air-conditioning unit instead.

Pilot 'smoking e-cigarette' forces Air China flight to plunge

Smoke entered the passenger cabin forcing the pilot to make an emergency descent and oxygen masks to drop.

A co-pilot who was smoking an e-cigarette is being investigated after his plane was forced to make an emergency descent when smoke entered the cabin.

The Air China Boeing 737 aircraft made the drop to 3,048m (10,000ft) after oxygen levels plunged in the cabin on Tuesday.

Oxygen masks were deployed during the descent on the flight from Hong Kong to the port city of Dalian in northwest China.

China's Civil Aviation Administration said smoke seeped into the passenger cabin, which can carry up to 215 passengers, according to state media.

"In the preliminary investigation, the co-pilot was found to be smoking an e-cigarette," China News said.
