A British Airways plane from London to Canada, August 12, 2014 was forced to abort its flight after smoke was discovered in the cockpit. The captain of the airline's Boeing 767 requested a priority landing following the emergency.

Cabin crew on board Flight 103 reported seeing smoke in the cockpit of the Calgary-bound plane, which departed London at 5.35pm. "They acted decisively in the face of a sudden emergency" according to a British Airways spokesman.

SMAAC Note:  As of today, we found no follow-up info on the web, but haven't searched the British government sites.  We would not expect US coverage even if BA or goernment sources made a report.
