I am trying to find more information out about a fire a DIA back in 2001 (Early Sept I believe). The picture that was posted on the a.net homepage for a while reminded me of it.
From what I understand (and actually saw), a BA
777 had just deplaned everyone and the fuel truck was starting to fuel on the left wing port just be the engine. Now, it is unclear as to what started the fire, but it was a rather large fire ball. The fueler was up in the basket doing the work and was caught in the basket during the fire. I didn't see it what happened to him, but apparently he jump out of the basket. Fire trucks were on scene quickly and put the fire out. It was a big mess. I got a chance to check out the scene close up later, but no one at the time knew really what happened. Rumor has it that the person involved died from the burns.
Anyway, I have been trying to find out info on the incident and the person involved. I know the 777 sat in Denver for a good long time and when I came back form a trip, it had left. Any information would be appreciated.
No, I didn't have a camera for those wondering.
Why sit at home and do nothing when you can travel the world.
