Quoting PEET7G (Reply 3):
I always new there was a good reason for the strict restrictions in Norway on selling alcohol, and that serving Akvavit (or Akevitt) as pre-takoff aperitif was not a good idea. biggrin
He he, the newspapers reports that when evacuating the aircraft, many passengers were obsessed with taking their duty-free bags (with alcohol) with them, even when going down the slides

Priceless! This just illustrates the insanity of the Norwegian alcohol politics
Would be nice to see some pictures of the aircraft hit by the waste vehicle!
We have clearance, Clarence. Roger, Roger. What's our vector, Victor?

Quoting MerlinIIIB (Reply 2): Probable cause: De-iceing fluid from the wing surface leaving the trailing edge while a deep red sunrise made the mist look like fire!
Having never been to Norway and coming from a very much warmer climate, (so I do not know what sort of weather Norway would be experiencing at the moment), is it normal for aircraft to be de-iced so early in the colder season?
