Germanwings Flight 4U-8460 was flying from Berlin to London when the smell of hydraulic oil and jet fumes entered the cabin.

The smell of the fumes became stronger as the flight reached cruising altitude, and began affecting crew members. The crew developed symptoms such as disorientation, vertigo, and blurred vision. One crew member ended up vomiting.

The flight was then diverted to Berlin, 45 minutes after takeoff, and members of the crew were checked into the hospital.
