Not much info on it...but here is a video link from Foxnews with no commentary.

It apparently went off after the flight landed. No word yet on what airline it was or where it was from. All the activity is surrounding a KLM 747 sitting at the gate by the way.

Flightaware is reporting it may be a KLM flight.

Police and fire trucks are surrounding a KLM aircraft affected. It is unknown where the luggage was at the time it exploded.

Appears to be a KL 744? Why do they have the plane so close to the terminal?


Garbage stinks; trash don't!

Is that an engine wrapped in the red tarp? I saw what looks like a tough Samsonite suitcase with a hole blown in the middle of it outwards.

Ha wow! Wonder if it was an aerosol can of hairspray inside the luggage or something like that which made it go off.

I don't think it was them, they use a contract handling company.
