Two fire trucks just sprayed a white foam underneath the right wing of the aircraft, even though there is no smoke from any point of the aircraft. Is that just to soak up fuel?

Wow, from the looks of that video there are big chunks of the engine cowls floating freely in the wind...uncontained engine failure possibly?
|Quoting D L X (Reply 30):|
Is that engine cowling, or flaps and ailerons? There's definitely a lot of material flapping in the stream of the fire hoses, isn't there?

This aircraft has had an interesting history. It started life with Kuwait Airways, one of three delivered to the airline; neither of the other two survived the Iraqi invasion and were flown to BGW and later destroyed in bombing raids.
9K-AIA went on to have several operators and since one 767 didn't make much sense, it was leased to several other carriers, including Egyptair, Qatar and Polynesian.

That looks like the remains of the lower closeout panels, aft of the spar, forward of the flaps. IIRC, they are made of fiberglass epoxy and don't hold up well to heat of this magnitude.

I am trying to decide if this is good marketing for the airline considering prior to this incident no one would be able to name this airline. Obviously bad press, but at least There are no fatalities and people now know that this airline exits and provides service to Venezuela.

I hope no one was injured.

Should it still be closed when Norwegian arrives, what's their divert option?
|Quoting 727LOVER (Reply 39):|
Why is the entire airport closed? There is a runway available on the south side.
