INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An engine fire forced authorities to evacuate a Detroit-bound Northwest Airlines plane Thursday while it was on the runway.

A member of the airport fire crew noticed the fire in the right-rear engine as the plane was waiting for clearance to take off and alerted the pilot, who stopped on the taxiway, said Indianapolis International Airport spokesman Dennis Rosebrough.

The Detroit-bound plane was carrying 70 passengers and five crew members. One person was injured while exiting the aircraft by emergency slide, Rosebrough said.

Airport firefighters extinguished the engine blaze. The cause was under investigation.

Right rear engine? Sounds like a DC-9 since the 727 is rarely used at all anymore. Maybe those replacements for the DC-9s will come sooner than we think.
