Scat's 737 Burned Down At The Gate At SCO

Tue Jun 16, 2015 3:43 pm

No probable cause yet.

Burned down at the gate at SCO shortly after landing from TSE. No casualties reported.

Most probably UP-B3710.

I don't think so because the UP-B3710 has no winglets (I think I see winglets in the video...). The only SCAT with winglets were LY-FLB (a B737-300) and LY-AZV (the only B737-700).

My bad, it's LY-FLB.

Here you could see clearly the winglets: https://youtu.be/iifcYYzT8d0

And I'm think it is LY-FLB

Based on the blue blended winglets in the video, certainly leads to LY-FLB as the -700 winglets are gray on LY-AZV.

It was N392UA in 1990.

Looks like it will soon be cokecans.

Good news that no one was hurt, just as well it did not happen in flight.

Back in the late 80's Delta had a 727 that burned up at the gate in SLC. it kinda sounds like this.

It was an O2 bottle that exploded, luckily this was on ground, if that happen few minutes earlier or later that is a tragedy for sure.

That is the proper location for the cabin O2 bottle...

(see page 13).

Interestingly enough, the ship's battery is located directly opposite the cabin O2 bottle, on the left side...

It could have even been a flash fire...say the O2 system has a leak (near the tank), it is a hot day, and 100% oxygen comes into contact with some item which happens to have a flash point at around 50-60 degrees centigrade in a 100% pure oxygen environment...

That's actually the O2 bottle for the flight deck crew. The cabin uses oxygen generators.

Actually the 737 (you say classic -- I say "New Gen" because that's what is was called) had oxygen generators starting in the late 80's (+/-) well before the 737NG ever flew.

From the registration it is a Lithuanian aircraft, probably an Wet-Leased aircraft from Small Planet Airlines ?

Considering that WN was flying the -300 in 1984, it seems it would depend on the build date and/or the customer airline's preference. Not that a plane with a bottle probably can't be retrofitted with O2 generators (is there an applicable STC for that?). So you'd probably have to know the history of the bird for a definitive answer...

Makes more sense than an exploding bottle, since oxygen doesn't burn on its own. In the event of a bottle explosion, fragments would need to cut through an electric cable, causing sparks which then in turn set something else on fire, or something like that...
Exceptions confirm the rule.
