Latest Breaking News From Varig

Sat Jul 10, 1999 11:31 am

This happened at 00:30 GMT, (21:30 local)
Fire on the basement of Varig´s hangar in Porto Alegre (my city- Varig´s home base) almost killed 5 people. There was a 767 parked there and the 5 people there were doing maintenance but no serious injuries on the workers or damaged aircraft. Thank God...
Maybe the fire was caused by an explosion.
I hope they are fine, including the aircraft :)
