Emergency landing at Terceira island! This flight "LH499" was cruising through the Atlantic (departed from Mexico to Frankfurt) when the crew had to divert to Lajes due to smoke on board! Got stuck here until the next day, when another B747 came to pick the passengers and brought the maintenance team to figure out the problem. [Canon 7D + Sigma 120-400]

I think I see the cause... oh no wait, that's external and not during cruise...;) No seriously, a nuisance for LH and the pax, but lucky for the spotters and I'm sure LH dealt with the situation well. LH Technik will have had the frame up and running in no time.
