CO 737-500 Engine Fire At IAD

Wed Oct 31, 2001 9:31 pm

Not many details yet, but a CO 737-500 had an engine fire last night at IAD. The plane was taxiing for takeoff to IAH. No injuries that I'm aware of.

I don't now about this, but last night, another B737 (Futura) got fire in one engine after take-off due to a bird in it. It did a succesfully emergency landing in Moscow, and nobody was injured.
This plane was doing Moscow-Madrid route, and was carrying a very famous football team in Spain (RCD Madrid).

I am now rather suspicious of this report. It was in the early edition of the Washington Post, but it has not appeared anywhere else.

I'll post an update when/if I get it. For now, you may want to consider this as "questionable".
