just saw a SWA airplane, looks like either a 733 or 735, stopped midway down Rwy 26 here at PHX. Aircraft is almost parallel with Terminal 3. Airstairs are currently hooked up and all the fire equip is out. Rumor here in the US breakroom is that the flight blew a tire / caught fire on rollout. I'm not sure, but it looks like it may be flight # 2493 from ONT. The flight number is only an educated guess from flightaware info.


Ok, wait for the RJ to pass, cleared to push tail south Mike, and you're cleared to spin #2 in the push.

Ugh! Notice the textbook bait-and-switch as far as the "hook" headline and the "boring" details of what actually happened? [My emphasis]

It was N662SW, a -300, and will overnight in PHX for an "all night brake change."

Perhaps more suited to non-av, but apparently Fox 10 news anchor Isis Romero was on the flight.
Is it possible for extreme hotness of a passenger to cause parts of an airplane to burst into flame?

No, but the vacuum present in the head of a news anchor attempting to cover an aviation-related story could very easily create problems with the pressurization, pneumatic, and pitot-static systems on board the aircraft...  Wink

Well, that explains why a blown tire attracted news choppers so quickly.

Wonder how they found out. Did Ms. Romero break the rules and use her cell phone against crew member and FAA instructions?

I've been on planes surrounded by fire crews as precautions, and no news choppers gave a darn…  Wink

In Phoenix, almost all of the time the news choppers are dealing with Sky Harbor's TRACON, so most events would be heard by the various stations.

The stations also have police and fire frequencies monitored at all times and this would have been picked up as well. It is very common (once a month) that they cover a light plane "issue" in PHX, from a bad gear indicator to other emergency landings.

Also keep in mind that ABC15's station is about 1/4 mile North of the airport on 44th St and leaves their helicopter sitting on the helicopter pad there during the day when its not flying. It would be a matter of 1-2 minutes to be up in the air over the airport once word came down.

Also, its not breaking the rules once you are on the ground. If that happened to me in this day and age, I would be calling my wife to make sure she knew I was fine, as it would end up on the news in minutes.
