The brake was set before the aircraft taxi into its postion. Huge amount of energy was concentrated when the pilots want to move the aircraft using throttle. The brake was locked and ground crew decied to tow the aircraft into postion and suddenly, the left gear caught fire due to the extreme temperature.

I flew this aircraft to Pyongyang last year. All I have to say is... SAFETY FIRST! The Dear Leader would settle for nothing less! :)
