SAS Flight Returns After 'Electric Smell' Jul 18, 2001

An MD-87 aircraft operated by the Scandinavian airline SAS had to return to Oslo Airport at Gardermoen, Norway yesterday after the crew noticed an 'electric smell' in the cabin.

The smell was noticed in the aft of the cabin and the pilot decided to return to Gardermoen, the Norwegian news provider Nettavisen reported.

The return was said to be uneventful and the 66 passengers were reportedly never in danger.

The source of the smell has not yet been determined.

Four SAS aircraft have been forced to make emergency landings in less than two weeks and SAS is now to review its safety routines, according to the airline's Norwegian manager Freddy Haugen.
