Not had all the confusion settled down after a false fire-indication light, (see story) :

-before another of their planes gets hit by a toilet-waste truck.  hissyfit 
This plane is also US, so now there are two aircraft sitting at Rygge for a few days...

Quoting Scooter01 (Thread starter):

(OT, I know)

See, this is why I like railroading ... when we get hit by a truck, we just wipe the paint off and keep going.

The "false fire" incident was, according to NRK radio, as follows: Several passengers observed a blowtourch-like fire from left wing. Cabin crew also observed it and alarmed the two up front.

Probable cause: De-iceing fluid from the wing surface leaving the trailing edge while a deep red sunrise made the mist look like fire!

So, anyone heard about this kind of illusion before?

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  Silly  spin

Priceless! This just illustrates the insanity of the Norwegian alcohol politics  alert 

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?

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?

Yes, not unusual at all. At the moment, temperature at night is close to zero. During the day temperature peaks at about 13 C. Snow was forecasted this week-end for elevations above 1000 feet.

I just came back from Spain, so this cool weather is really refreshing! Best time of year here in Norway.
