Tobacco smoke is now known to kill and so does oil smoke.

As with any health issue, some get it some don’t – but as an ex airline pilot I suffered for around 16 years as a zombie, my speech, memory thought processing and a list of other neurological problems which started on flying the BA e 146 in 1989 and slowly disappeared after being forced to stop flying. What a coincidence.

I know of countless aircrew and passengers who have been poisoned and the sad part is that only a few Courts have had the opportunity to judge the issue.

The 2010 Australian High Court case took 18 years from fume event to win, which gives people some idea of how hard it is for sick people to get justice.

The fact that TCP (an organophosphate) is now being found even on normal flights should be sufficient worry – it’s nerve gas.

Watch the Dutch TV programme. ‘Poison in cockpit’
