Plane makes emergency landing with pilots in oxygen masks because of smelly fruit

A plane had to make an emergency landing when durian fruit stank out the cabin.

The Air Canada Rouge jet had left Montreal for a flight to Vancouver, and the “strong odour” made things difficult for those on board the Boeing 767 aircraft.

According to Flight Global, the pilots – who donned oxygen masks – requested an emergency landing when the crew couldn’t find the source of the smell.

Back in Montreal, it was discovered a shipment of durian – known for its distinctive odour – was in the forward cargo compartment.
