A PLANE’S first officer threw up during a mid-air toxic fume scare.
He vomited twice after taking off an oxygen mask he put on after air in the cockpit was contaminated.
A cabin crew chief on the London-bound British Airways flight was also violently sick.
And the next day the captain went to hospital complaining of a blinding headache.
The drama was on a flight from Amsterdam to Gatwick last Tuesday.
On the same day, emergency services lined a runway at Gatwick after a fume scare on a BA flight from Venice.
Some 291 contamination events have been reported on BA flights since January.
A BA source said: “Some cabin crew are scared to go to work. Fume events are the talk of the restrooms and hotels during stopovers.”
Campaigners claim that passengers and crew have suffered from breathing air sucked in through leaking oil seals on jet engines.
