Passengers on a British Airways flight faced a terrifying ordeal on Monday when their plane filled with smoke as the plane approached its destination.
The flight, BA 422 from London’s Heathrow Airport to Valencia, Spain, was descending on approach to Valencia Airport when the cabin suddenly filled with smoke.
"I have never experienced fear like it," Dani Meroño Bori, a passenger on the flight, tweeted in Spanish. "We just jumped down the ramp!"
The flight appeared to stop on the runway after landing, and passengers evacuated the plane — an Airbus A321 — via emergency slides.
"[It] felt like a horror film," Lucy Brown, another passenger, tweeted. "[The] flight filled with smoke and had to be emergency evacuated."
Brown, an associate dean at the London College of Communication, was traveling with her four children.
"There was a horrible smell. People were almost choking," she told Mirror Online.
It was not immediately clear whether anyone was injured, although several passengers tweeted that everyone was okay.
In a statement to Business Insider, British Airways said that it was still collecting details.
"We are aware of an incident involving one of our aircraft in Valencia. We will release more information as soon as we have it."
