Smoke in the cockpit

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.

Enjoy!!

A Boeing 737-800, en route from Milan (Italy) to Barcelona (Spain), was cruising at FL380 and was about 70nm northeast of Marseille (France) when the crew noticed smoke coming from the flight management computer. They decided to divert to Marseille while continuing to follow their checklist to try to stop the smoke. They landed safely on runway 32L approximately 15 minutes after they first saw the smoke.
The plane stayed on the ground while maintenance tried to solve the problem. The passengers were moved on to other flights.
