Norway-bound Air France returns to Paris after captain falls ill

PARIS: An Air France plane flying from Paris to the Norwegian city of Stavanger had to turn back mid-way on Tuesday (Dec 30) after the captain fell ill, an airport source said. Flight AF1746 landed at Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport at 1910 GMT (3:10am, Singapore time), 37 minutes after take-off, an Air France spokeswoman said. "There was a medical emergency on board and the crew decided to return to Paris," she said. "The captain felt a pain in his thorax and preferred not to continue the flight. The plane returned to Paris and the co-pilot handled the landing," an airport source added. The source said the captain was attended to by medics immediately on arrival.
