KLM 744 Stuck At SXM

Sun Jun 20, 2004 10:44 am

I saw the KLM 744 from AMS land seemingly uneventfully if somewhat firm this afternoon on runway 09 at SXM. It backtracked as normal down runway 27 and taxied to the gate. Subsequently the return flight back to AMS was cancelled as the aircraft went tech and a fire-engine was in attendance at the aircraft for the next few hours. Anyone know what is up with the KL 744? Will be interesting tomorrow to see if they have to fly in a replacement or if they can fix the problem here.
Regards from SXM

Sounds like over heated wheel brakes, as you mentioned the fire crew was attending the aircraft.
