Michael Barrett remembers coming back from a holiday in Tenerife in 1991 when his plane caught on fire. As smoke filled the cabin it was clear that there was going to need to be an emergency landing. The plane was able to divert to Santo Porto, a island off the coast of Portugal. Michael’s cousin was actually flying the plane behind his and was able to see that the plane was in trouble.
