iphoneThe faulty iPhone (Photo: REX)A REX Regional Express Saab 340B, registration VH-PRX performing flight ZUL-319 from Lismore,NS to Sydney,NS (Australia), was on approach to Sydney when a passenger's iPhone started to emit smoke followed by red glow. The flight attendant managed to cool the iPhone down and stop glow and smoke. The aircraft continued for a safe landing in Sydney.

The ATSB have initiated an investigation.

A passenger reported that the flight attendant became aware of the owner of the iPhone becoming agitated while on approach to Sydney. After touchdown the iPhone was thrown onto the floor where the flight attendant then cooled the Smartphone down and stopped the glow and smoke.

The airline reported that the iPhone self combusted after landing emitting a significant amount of dense smoke accompanied by a red glow, the flight attendant carried out recovery actions.

The ATSB reported on Nov 30th that after landing the flight attendant used a fire extinguisher to cool the phone down, passengers and crew disembarked safely. There are no records of any self-ignitions of Smartphone or other portable devices within Australia, given the widespread carriage and use of such technology the ATSB is however keen to fully understand the nature of this event.

In the meantime, the ATSB stressed, "this event reinforces the importance of the prohibition of carriage of lithium batteries in checked baggage and the benefits of being able to respond quickly and effectively in the rare event that a problem is encountered in the aircraft cabin."
