American Airlines flight Evacuated on the ground at LHR

Sun Jun 26, 2016 4:26 pm

I Wonder what type of "Technical Issue" Could have prompted such an evacuation? APU fire?

It sounds like it is an APU issue, as a passenger said that he saw smoke coming out of the tail. I wonder what airframe and destination was involved.

The aircraft involved was an A333, registration N276AY. The flight it was operating was AA728 PHL-LHR, the outbound flight it was going to operate, AA731 LHR-CLT has been cancelled
