Glad to hear that nobody was hurt . Was the wing on fire before the plane touched down or it caught fire upon landing ?

That seems a quite long time to extinguish a wingfire ...!
30 Minutes are a looooong time once you have a fire on any aircraft.Either the report is wrong or the plane must have been severely dammaged...

"The engine no-3 of the airliner carrying 307 passengers on board caught fire immediately after landing at the airport due to technical fault, the airport officials said."

The Daily Star report also suggests slight injuries. It says that SV 810 arrived from Jeddah and not from Medinah as the earlier report said. It also says that the firebrigade put out the flames promptly ...

So guess we'll have to average the two reports to get to the truth ...

Half an hour seems like a long time to extinguish the fire. Wouldn't have thought there would be much left after that long.

At least no-one was injured. Whenever I see "Saudia" and "fire" in the same sentence I think of the Tristar tragedy.

Glad to hear no one was hurt...does anyone know what the aircraft was? I'm assuming it was either the 747-100, I've seen their 741s at DAC before. Though I suppose it could have been a 743 as well...

Hehe, if you average Medinah and Jeddah you get Yanbu, and I don't think that its possible that the flight originated from there  Smile

Maybe the flight number originated in Madinah, but I'm pretty sure it must have come through JED.

I cannot seem to wrap my mind around how that tragedy actually was escalated to that point. Everything that could have went wrong did, it was such an avoidable tragedy.

At least!! Sometimes even 3 reports to get close to what really happened  Wink

This is the second Saudia incident in a short months time, the other one being the 777 with a hole in it's wing. Not implying anything, but these are two serious incidents...

Glad that the emergency crews reacted swiftly and promptly to avoid any serious injury's to pax or crew  Smile

somehow the media reports always have gaps in them.The official statement normally is the truth...but its released much later understandably.

If you check www.amadeus.net, you will see that SV currently operate a B747SP to DAC on scheduled flights. This might surprise a few people - it certainly surprised me recently.

I'm glad it was not the SP that was involved in this incident, as we need as many SP's flying as possible, from an enthusiast's point of view.

SV does not operate any 747SP in passenger configrated commercial flights. It has two 747SP used by its Royal Flight arm.

Checking JACDEC, they say that the aircraft was leased from Air Atlanta and TF registered.

It also says that after the fire was extinguished (30minutes) the passengers left the a/c via stairs on the taxi ways.

Can it be that Saudia has an operational procedure in place, requiring passengers, in case of fire, to stay on board until the fire is extinguished?

If that was the case I'd very much prefer not to fly with them...

Funny but not true at all.

As per the local news and an official from the Saudi General Civil Aviation Authority, passengers evacuated via the slides while on the runway. In fact the cabin crew did a marvelous job evacuating the passengers without any minor injuries.

someone should tell JACDEC. They still claim (updated) that passengers left the aircraft after 30 minutes when the fire had been extinhguished via the stairs on a taxi way.

Thats what I thought too.

I just wonder why SV have been showing 74L on their DAC flights in Amadeus recently.

I think 74L refers to that Air Atlanta 743.
