Smoke in the cockpit led to a Calgary-bound flight out of London, U,K. to abort its flight on Tuesday.

The Boeing 767-300’s crew acted decisively in the face of a sudden emergency and requested a priority landing at Heathrow, said British Airways spokeswoman Michele Kropf.

“The flight crew reported seeing smoke in the cockpit,” said Kropf of British Airways Flight 103.
