After seeing the photos below of the DC-10 incident at Manchester in 1998 I looked around on the net trying to find the cause of the possible engine fire but found nothing. Does anybody know how this happened?

This is very interesting, although I accept that the Pax may have another word! Thanks for the post crosswind but am I mising something from the report?
At 11:42 the aircraft was given permission to backtrack to the stand.
At 14:45:57 the aircraft stopped on taxiway Barvo.

I was up on level 13 when this incident occurred....and for the few people that were there it certianly made interesting talk. From what i remember i saw a few seconds of fuel just p!ssing out the rear end before it stopped, then the slides deployed and all the equipment was around it. Didn't last too long and nothing serious happened, but it's still interesting when it happens right in front of you.
ps, i miss those Conti DC-10's!

I was actually on the inbound flight to Manchester 3 hours earlier the only drama on our flight was when we began to climb away from Newark several overhead lockers opened and bags began to fall on to the passengers
