A Learjet 60XR, A6-RJE, incurred minor damage during cruise flight near Hamad International Airport (OTHH), Doha, Qatar. The two pilots, one flight attendant and four passengers were not injured.
The flight departed from King Khalid International Airport (OERK), Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and was destined for Doha International Airport (OTBD), Doha Qatar.
While in cruise flight at flight level 190, after the thermal wing anti-icing was selected to "ON" in preparation for descent, the flight attendant reported a bad odor, heat, and white smoke in the cabin. The flight subsequently diverted and landed uneventfully at OTHH. Examination of the airplane revealed a damaged coupling on the right wing anti-icing duct, located behind the right aft sidewall adjacent to the bulkhead, which resulted in a bleed air leak.
