C18H27NO3: "The pilot on the British Airways plane aborted take-off after hearing a loud bang."

Is hearing a noise the extent of technology to alert you that something might be wrong with part of your plane?


Of course not. But, hearing a loud unexpected noise gets your attention pretty quickly. If you are getting ready to leave in your car, and you hear a loud unexpected sound do you not stop to check it out? No, you pull over, grab the gun on the passenger seat, head to the trunk, and verify the hooker is in fact dead. You don't just keep going, that might lead to serious if not fatal issues.

To my understanding, more modern planes are also equipped with smoke generators. When a sensor in the electronic system finds something out of order, it turns on one of the redundant smoke generators. The pilot smells the smoke, knows something is wrong, and makes an emergency landing.

You have been misinformed; it is not a "smoke generator" but a "toke generator".  When something goes wrong on the plane a bong is immediately released from the overhead compartment and everyone takes a big hit and relaxes. This is why when things are really really bad on the flight deck there is a long, loud BONG to remind the flight crew to take their hit.

/for those who don't know a long BONG on some old planes was the signal for "all engines out".
