Oven trouble

Fly High English logo.

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


A 737-800, with 185 people on board, was en route at FL340 about halfway to its destination when an oven in the rear galley started to vent smoke. The smoke came from the back and the sides of the oven. The circuit breaker for the oven was automatically tripped and the smoke started to disappear. The flight crew didn’t need to use the fire extinguishers. The aircraft continued to its destination for a safe landing but the oven had to be replaced.
