Another cabin fume incident!
Regardless of aircraft type here is another Cabin Air Fume incident implying that the crew and pax were all subject to tri crysl phosphate (TCP a Neuro toxin ) from the engine oil gaining access to the airconditioning via the 'bleed air' intakes.
Hopefully none of those on board will be negatively impacted by the ingestion of the poisons!
