RE: Fire At PHL?

Ops is reporting a UPS DC-8 that is on fire on Rwy 27R. I guess they are just starting to get control of the fire. They are already planning huge delays once the airport is reopened and expecting 27R to stay closed most of the day. Anyone have any other info?

I think Pangean Airlines would be a great name for an airline. The word refers to when all the continents on the earth were one giant landmass. Thus the name would imply that the airline connects all the worlds continents together as one.
