CUPE Airline members, health and safety activists and air travellers in general should find a way to see Welcome Aboard Toxic Airlines, a ground breaking documentary on aircraft contaminated air.

The 93 minute film’s North American premiere is Sun., Oct. 26, 2008 at 1:00 PM, at the Planet in Focus International Environmental Film & Video Festival in Toronto.

Judith Murawski, Industrial Hygienist with the Association of Flight Attendants, will introduce the film and answer questions.

The film tells the story of what some airline crews call the biggest cover up in aviation history.

Passengers and crews have been breathing unfiltered air - taken directly from aircraft engines for nearly fifty years.

This despite the fact that the air is believed to be contaminated with engine oil containing neurotoxins, carcinogens and other hazardous chemicals.

The film maker, Tristan Loraine a former UK airline pilot, reveals for the first time the serious exposure consequences on flight safety, and the serious health effects on those who have and continue to be exposed.
