anyone get the tail number?



If Continental had a hub at DFW with nonstop flights I would always fly them, unfortunantely good things take time.

Heard it was an APU fire, aircraft was on taxiway E. Must not have been too bad, since the media hasn't been able to tear themselves away from the election coverage...  Big grin

I'm thinking it is nothing big too ... Thank god. I am still wondering what the whole story is ... Sometimes our dc10's APU's shoot flames out the tail pipes for 10 feet ....As long as no one is standing there its no big deal.

I was loading AWA #660 outbound @ B-23. ServisAir's Lav Truck had white smoke pouring out for a few minutes. They moved it out of the way with a Bag Tug. It occured just after BA 288 arrived on B-25. There wasn't any visible fire, though. You must have picked that up on the PHX Aviation band? That was around 15:30 on Election Day.

Thank You Derek! Good Luck with the LA Dodgers

There was a some slight visible fire. They were showing it live on Channel 12 news. The fire was spotted by a smaller plane taxiing behind the HP jet.


The 747: The hands who designed it were guided by god.

Whoa! So that's what I saw. I was on WN flight 2659 from Austin and when we landed there was quite a traffic jam on the take-off side of the runway. We could not taxi to the gate for a few minutes until the situation cleared. The aircraft in question ended up taxiing down the runway with a fire truck following behind. I tried to get pictures but it was too dark and they didn't come out. I was curious what it was.
