According to Chinese press, an Air Koryo TU-154's tires caught fire during landing

The cause was mainly due to the speed of landing and aging tires. The left main gear was affected.

JS151 landed at Beijing on 06MAR 0920LT, when fire occurred. The plane was towed to Terminal 2 and it was put down 10 minutes after.

Did they use lethal injection or did they shoot it?

I think the preferred method is a bullet at point blank range to the radome!

Perhaps it'll just "disappear" in true authoritarian-communist style. The last pic of the one guy trying to put the fire out with a jacket is priceless. It's probably the Air Koryo pilot - he'll no doubt have hell to pay when he gets back to the Fatherland!!!

Looks like they didn't use an injection or bullet. They tried to smother it.

What an inhumane way to be put down.

I'm confused by this - shouldn't there be some fire trucks or something? Do any of those people on bicycles possess firefighting gear? Anywhere else on Earth and a fleet of foam trucks would be there already.

I'd swear that was a 777, with the triple-truck landing gear, other than the captain trying to swat out the fire with a uniform jacket. Or for all we know, maybe he is fanning the flames...

Flame on. Oh did I say that?

If it was BJS why didnt they have fire engines ??? Seems a bit weird to me . If it was in North Korea it wpuld be understandable . At least it seems the fire was put out and hopefully it will be up and flying again soon .

Hi,

The site above has photos of fire trucks on the scene.

Here is the article translated by Google. Appears the fire started upon taxi, when a wheel locked up (if I am reading the translation correctly)

How about checking the report and the other pictures as well? You will see, that PEK does have fire engines as well, and yes, also in the DPRK they know what fire engines are.

It looks to me like the order of the picture is wrong on the quoted website. I also doubt that the guy with the jacket would be any crew member. If it happend just after the landing I assume that the crew and the pax would still be inside the airplane?!

I'd hate to be the captain that has to call back to his boss in Pyongyang to tell him "we have a little problem, please send another plane".

I wonder what gulag that poor captain is in today?  Smile

For any of you ARFF experts out there, here's a question. If the tires rupture due to the heat, Mr. "Blanket Fire Extinguisher" could be killed, right?

I actually think its very sad !! I know that the USA has its views on North Korea but if it was a AA 777 would we see the same ''funny'' comments!!!! I think not .

Maybe the jokes wouldn't have a "third world country" twang to them, but there would definitely be jokes. I don't think you'd see an AA or airport employee trying something that stupid.
