SYNOPSIS
 
The aircraft was on a scheduled passenger flight from Birmingham Airport (EGBB), United Kingdom, to Cork Airport (EICK), Ireland. The flight was uneventful until just before the aircraft began its descent into Cork, at which point the Flight Crew received a Master Caution, triggered by two electrical faults. This was followed by a Master Warning associated with electrical smoke and by the sight and smell of smoke in the cockpit. The Flight Crew donned their oxygen masks, declared an emergency (Mayday) to Air Traffic Control (ATC), and carried out the SMOKE Checklist memory actions. Non-normal checklists associated with Smoke, Electrical Smoke, and associated electrical failures were also completed, including the Manual Gear Extension checklist. The smoke cleared and the aircraft landed normally. There were no injuries.
