Hope nobody was injured.

The slides are the quickest way to get out, and the F100 fleet of AUA is not equiped with its own stairs.

Main thing is to get out fast.....

An Austrian Airlines Fokker 100, registration OE-LVL performing flight OS-774 from Belgrade (Serbia) to Vienna (Austria) with 83 passengers and 5 crew, were preparing for departure from Belgrade when the left hand engine (Tay 651) began to emit smoke during the engine start. Passengers and crew were evacuated, no injuries occured.

The flight was cancelled, the passengers were rebooked onto other flights.

The aircraft was in a process of engine start, after being de-iced. They were just pushed back from their stand.

Hmmm... just wondering, why weren't the overwing exits used? In an evacuation, I would think the top priority is getting everyone out as fast and as safely as possible. Is it that they are located too close to the engines?

FWIW, the overwing exits on the right were not used either, judging from the photos.

I'd guess that they wanted to get the pax out quickly, but not 'emergency evacuation' quickly.

As this F100 is obviously fitted with a forward opening door (instead of the downward opening doors with integral stairs), the best way to do this is to deploy the slide instead of waiting for passenger steps to be brought out to the aircraft.

I'm guessing that they didn't want to send pax down the wing (sliding down the flaps) directly towards an engine that may burst into flames, or may be being foamed by the fire service.
