Narrative:
An Airbus A300-608ST Beluga transport plane performed an emergency landing after smoke developed in the cockpit.
The aircraft was en route from Chester Airport, U.K. to Hamburg-Finkenwerder, Germany. It was descending through FL200 to the north of Bremen, when the flight crew declared an emergency. A safe landing was carried out about 15 minutes later.
An inspection revealed there had been a 'cable fire' on the flight deck, which had already extinguished.
