Saw this as I was coming off shift at 1930 tonight. It was either sitting on 33R/15L or the Echo taxiway. At least three fire trucks (that I could see) as well as various other emergency and airport authority vehicles surrounding it.
I saw this as well - I was on an AA
737 waiting to depart YYZ
. We were taxing northbound to the northern most East-West Runway, when we first noticed several emergency vehicles of various shapes and sizes waiting side by side on our right, all flashing many red lights, as if they were waiting to see if they would be summoned to the emergency. We sat there for about 10 minutes before moving again.
Then two fire trucks raced past us on our left, southbound down either RW33 or the taxiway next to it. I couldn't see where they were going until we lined up facing west to take off. As we took off I could see the large twin in the distance in AC
colors with many emergency vehicles around it. It did not seem to be moving. I thought it was a 330 because it looked larger than a 767, but it was several thousand feet away. It was dusk by this time.
I figured there would be a post about this once I got back to L.A.
Ironically, when my flight landed, we landing on 24R (is that correct - the Northern most runway?) and we waited quite a while before making our way to the gate. Finally the captain said they were waiting for ground crews to "move an emergency A/C," whatever that means...
