On a Wing and a Prayer?

I have recently viewed a very powerful and emotional film created by an ex-BA pilot; Tristan Lorraine, called ‘Welcome Aboard Toxic Airlines’.

The film seeks to highlight the long and sometimes bitter struggle of those professionals, who have been subject to exposure to smoke or fume events on board aircraft.

The film highlights the severe debilitating effects that exposure can cause, because it is argued, crew and passengers are being exposed to dangerous chemicals.

The battle to highlight this issue has been valiantly fought in Australia, The United States and now England, however, here is the rub. Despite convincing evidence, which should at the very least caution airlines and governments about this hidden danger, the authorities and the industry appear to be refusing to err on the side of caution and take immediate action.

If you need convincing, then I would suggest that you take a look at what the Aerotoxic Association has to say about this.

Since 2006, we have received complaints from holidaymakers alleging exposure to fumes or smoke in an aircraft cabin; many of these passengers are suffering from serious physical and neurological deficits.

I ask 2 questions; if passengers and crew are suffering in this way, how many global flight incidents have been caused by such and exposure, secondly, if there is danger of dangerous chemicals entering into a cockpit or passenger cabin, what is the effect on those who live close to airports every time they are subject to ‘crop spraying’ by aircraft on take off or landing? If you need convincing on this issue, read this interesting article about formaldehyde!
