Incident:Boeing 737-8AS, EI-ENB,Kerry Airport (EIKY), Co. Kerry, Ireland, 21 December 2010:Report No 2012-004

SYNOPSIS

Shortly after landing, smoke was observed in both the cockpit and cabin.  The aircraft was stopped, the engines were shut down and an evacuation was carried out. No technical defect was found during the subsequent examination.  It is probable that the smoke was caused by the engines ingesting granular urea, which had been used to de-ice the runway during a very cold weather period.
