It doesn't look like it did too much damage. Apart from some BBQ'ed hyd lines and wires.

On what side is the refuelling panel again?



Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

Spiegel Online has it on its website, too

http://www.spiegel.de/panorama/0,1518,574357,00.html

The article is in German and mixture of sensational journalism and nonsense. Burning planes must be the new thing.

Anyway the article is complaining that the passengers had to crawl out of the exits, down a stairway and that there were no slides. What a nonsense. The ATR has no slides.

I am sure some pax felt entitled to their 2 meter slide experience, which is a lot worse than actually getting hurt...  banghead 



Where have all the tri-jets gone...

I hear the longer the slide, the worse the burn. I've always been curious as to what the slide looks like from the upper deck of the 747. Anyone have some photos of them deployed?

The 747 that snapped in half at Brussels a few weeks back had slides deployed from the top deck, there are dozens of shots on A.net.


I wonder what started the fire. I cant see it being likely that the tyre would burst into flames in taxi, an emergency stop at landing speed possibly. Wonder if there was some fuel spilled on the brake mechanism accidentally.

Wonder how long they were taxiing--brakes can get exceptionally hot (definitely hotter than you'd think) on a long taxi. Plus if there was a relatively quick turnaround there may have been residual heat.



I got my head checked--by a jumbo jet
